Alex Liggitt ABC7 Meteorologist
Alex is the Executive Weather Producer for the ABC7 Weather Team and has been working at the station since 2005. He also interned for ABC7 for Doug Hill during the summer of 2004 while still in college. He earned a meteorology degree from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C. in 2005 and is an avid fan of the Wolfpack.
Growing up in Fairfax Station, Virginia, Alex grew fascinated by the weather at a young age. He was always interested in thunderstorms but is still afraid of lightning to this very day. He even used to make his best friend sit in his garage with him and watch storms as they rolled through the neighborhood.
You'll often see Alex out running, which is his second passion in life. He enjoys the beach and loves his family which has now moved to southern South Carolina.
Whether you are heading to the beach or hanging around this holiday weekend, here's an idea of what to expect of the weather.
Many of you are probably hating this weather today, but sunshine looks to return for the holiday weekend.
Expect beautiful conditions for the remainder of the afternoon but clouds will increase tonight ahead of a system that will bring rain to the area Thursday.
A frontal boundary will bring the chance for storms this afternoon but cooler weather will round out the work week.
A few showers and storms will be possible today in a very hot and humid airmass.
