Jen Carfagno was born July 19, 1976, in Collegeville, Pennsylvania where she was brought up. Growing up her childhood dream was to become a pilot, but over time she confesses that she fell in love with the weather. Living on the east coast allowed her to experience weather of every season. Learning its intricacies, Jen claimed it was the curiosity to learn about it that drove her to study it at the suggestion of her school teacher.
Jen attended Perkiomen Valley High School and graduated in 1994. While still a student, she would call into weather stations to make her weather predictions for the day. Before graduating college, Jen had a one-year internship with the Weather Channel and appeared in an on-camera meteorologist apprentice program every weekend where she earned valuable experience as both a weather forecaster as well as several positions in the Weather Channels meteorology departments.
Jen graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1998, with a BS in Meteorology. At present Jen is a meteorologist working for TWC (The Weather Channel) as well as serving as co-host with Eric Fisher on Weather View. Starting her career in 1997 at TWC every morning since has started for Jen at 2:24 am not being adverse to scooting into whatever other slots she is needed in she is someone who is very sediment about her job bringing her love to classrooms. Jen developed and led Weather Camps around the country for TWC, speaking at these camps to students she is allowed to introduce students to her passion for science.
Eric Fisher and Jen have both anchored the weekend weather program together for a number of years On the weekdays, she co-hosts AMQH Early from 5 am to 6 am. In the business for over 20 years, Jen is very passionate when it comes to her work with her favorite coverage being about hurricanes and other large storms.
On November 12, 2013, Jen with Alex Wallace introduced a new type of weather graphics for constant weather reliability by TWC called the Weather All The Time.
One of Jen’s favorite forecasting tools is the Global Forecast System (GFS) model rather than using the archaic Euro Computer Model. As weather being her passion, her favorite temperatures are either in the 80s or 50s degrees depending on the time of year. These are what she considers her perfect days where she can go running to help clear her mind or practice her photography. Her favorite place is the beach where she can enjoy blue skies or stormy weather. Of the beaches in the US her favorite is the beach of Walton County Florida.
Jen has received various awards, among them is the Robert O. Cole Award, which was a scholarship in meteorology only awarded to outstanding students with a strong interest in weather forecasting donated by Ms. Sue Burton Cole which she received in 1997. A member of the Chi Epsilon Pi Honor Society again is proof of Jen’s outstanding efforts.
