 "Remeisha was inspired to pursue a career in meteorology as a teenager when she and her family lived through an F4 tornado which destroyed her neighborhood and home," FOX 26 Vice President and News Director, Susan Schiller said in a statement obtained by  "Since then, she understands the potentially life-saving nature of weather reporting and will bring that passion to our broadcast and digital viewers."

Shade comes to Houston, to join Mike Iscovitz, Lena Maria Arango and John Dawson on the Gulf Coast Weather Authority team, from News 5 WEWS Cleveland, Ohio where she is the weekend evening meteorologist.

My blog readers will recognize Shade from her previous Texas TV jobs with NBC 5 DFW KXAS Dallas-Fort Worth and KBMT 12 Beaumont.

In fact while at KXAS, Shade covered the Metroplex's deadly tornado outbreak of December 26th, 2015.

In between DFW and Beaumont, Shade worked for WAFF 48 Huntsville, AL. 

"I'm thrilled to be returning to the south and the great state of Texas where I started my career as a meteorologist," Shade added.  "I'm passionate about weather and look forward to working with the FOX 26 weather team to bring viewers the most accurate forecasts possible."

The Florida State University Bachelor's of Science degree in Meteorology grad also is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist by the American Meteorological Society.

 According to her bio, Shade competed in the Miss Alabama Teen USA pageant and also won Miss Florida State University while an FSU senior. Bringing things closer to her ultimate meteorological career, Shade competed in the Miss Florida pageant performing a jazz dance which included a weather forecast.
