After His Computer Crashes, Colorado Meteorologist Gets Creative…Again

You may remember morning meteorologist Justin Chambers from the Colorado Springs FOX affiliate KXRM acting out the forecast after his graphics went down last January.

This morning, Chambers tweeted out a picture showing his computer with a blank screen. He told viewers, “This is my weather computer this morning. Watch me pantomime the weather on @FOX21News today.”

After checking with our sources at KXRM we were assured staffers didn’t just turn off Chambers’ computer to force the on-air magic that he brought today.

This morning Chambers gave viewers forecasting techniques that ranged from eating a donut and drinking coffee on-screen, to having a staffer use an iPad to write out the forecast, to dancing, to playing weather charades with his off-screen co-anchor. Enjoy.
