On-Camera Meteorologist and Co-Host, "AMHQ"
Jen Carfagno is co-host of AMHQ weekdays from 5-9 a.m. ET on The Weather Channel.
Jen earned her bachelor's degree in meteorology from Pennsylvania State University in 1998 - a year after an internship with The Weather Channel. Later that year, she joined The Weather Channel as a full-time forecaster. Jen first participated in the on-camera meteorologist apprentice program at The Weather Channel, earning time in front of the camera every weekend. In addition to her on-air assignments, Jen gained valuable weather knowledge and experience from several key positions in the meteorology departments.
During that time, Jen was the liaison for the Meteorology Science & Strategy Department to several other business units. She also was the point person for The Weather Channel's tactical operations with the National Weather Service, the EPA AIRNow program and other related government agencies. Jen developed and led Weather Camps around the country for The Weather Channel and continues to speak to students about a passion of hers - science.
In her spare time, Jen enjoys running, relaxing at the beach or working in the yard. Her favorite weather measurement is dew points as she is often referred to as the "Dewpoint Diva." Her life-long goal is to help people understand how important they are to everyday life.
Jen lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband and two children.
