WSB-TV meteorologist Brian Monahan is missing from his Atlanta viewers’ screens – where is he? Is he on vacation, and has the network given any indication of when he will be back?

Where is Brian Monahan?

WSB-TV meteorologist Brian Monahan appears to be in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, on vacation. 

Two days ago, the Atlanta journalist posted a photo to his Instagram followers of the view from a balcony overlooking the sea in the resort town, which lies just under 200 miles due west of state capital Guadalajara.

He reported experiencing temperatures of 80 degrees Fahrenheit – in December – and wrote, “Can I bring some back to Atlanta, please?”

Several of his regular viewers expressed their approval in the comments. One wrote that it was “cold, damp and gloomy here today”; another commented that it looked “like paradise”.

But others answered in the negative, arguing they “need [their] cooler temps for December!”, among other things.

For how much longer will Brian Monahan be on vacation?

Monahan hasn’t revealed, via his social media channels at least, exactly how long his Mexican vacation will last.

However, as one of his Facebook followers has noted, “severe weather doesn’t take a vacation”. 

Monahan has been posting about the storm that has ravaged Kentucky, causing his fans to thank him for “caring enough about us to post this warning while on vacation!”.

One wrote that they would see Monahan back on Tuesday; Brian himself commented: “vacation is winding down – it’s the normal start to plug back in”.

It seems likely that Atlanta audiences can expect to see Brian Monahan back on their TV screens some time this week.
