Why has Nick Allard been absent from KIRO 7?
Nick Allard usually delivers the weather forecast in the morning until noon but, as of late, the meteorologist has been missing from the Washington station.
Fans took to social media to ask Allard why he has been absent from KIRO 7, prompting him to share an update on Twitter.
In short, Nick just needed some extended time to recharge his batteries and spend time with his wife and three children. We certainly don’t blame him!
The KIRO 7 meteorologist tweeted at the end of January: “What I’ve been up to… I’m taking some extended time off to be at home. Believe it or not, getting up at 2am can be really tiring and sometimes impacts my overall health!
“So I’m taking some time to recharge and spend some quality time with my family. See you soon!”
Allard didn’t specify when he’d return to KIRO 7 but, judging by his tweet, viewers can expect to see him again in the near future. In the meantime, Claire Anderson is delivering the forecast.
