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.
After a break from the excessive heat for nearly two weeks, temperatures will spike near 90 the rest of the week.
Showers and storms will be possible this afternoon and evening as an area of low pressure continues to sit just west of D.C.
Will fireworks go on as scheduled or are more storms anticipated to steal the show?
An isolated shower or storm is possible today but nothing compared to last night. More rain is expected for the end of the work week.
Dew points are back in the 60s and 70s and storm chances will be on the rise this afternoon.
