KPRC meteorologist Mary Lee is leaving the Houston NBC affiliate to be closer to her family on the West Coast.

“Before I head back home, I want to thank you. Over these last three years, I have come to love Houston and all of you,” Lee wrote on Facebook. “Ever since I first started at KPRC, you have welcomed me and embraced me.”

Lee joined KPRC as a weekend meteorologist in 2010. She has also worked at KXAN in Austin, KHSL in Chico, Calif. and KOVR in Sacramento. [h/t Mike McGuff]
