There’s a big change in the weather on 95.3 MNC

95.3 MNC is excited to announce a brand-new partnership with the award-winning WSBT 22 Storm Alert Weather Team of meteorologists.

Starting immediately, you will hear the most experienced weather team in Northern Indiana around the clock on 95.3 MNC and The MNC Nation on 101.9 FM and 1380 AM.

Decades of combined experience allow the Storm Alert Weather Team to accurately forecast Michiana’s Next Weather Maker and provide minute-by-minute coverage during severe weather events.

As always, when severe weather of consequence or tornado warnings are issued for the metro area, MNC will provide wall-to-wall coverage, now featuring the WSBT Storm Alert Weather Team.

Leading the team is Chief Meteorologist Cari Peugeot.  Cari Peugeot has been a part of the WSBT since the summer of 2001! Being a part of this area for so long, Cari has covered many weather extremes like seeing tornados one day, then snow the next.  Cari really loves forecasting the changing seasons and the challenging forecasts that come along with living near Lake Michigan.





Meteorologist Abby Weppler has been a part of the Storm Alert Weather Team since 2010.   She grew up in Akron, Ohio, with her parents and three older sisters. She obtained her Geoscience degree with a focus in Meteorology from Mississippi State University.  Abby has previously been named  “best anchor” and “best weathercast” by the Associated Press.





Meteorologist Lynnette Grant is a graduate of Valparaiso University and is back at her second home in Indiana. She grew up in the Chicago suburbs before moving to Sioux City, Iowa, where she was a meteorologist for KMEG/KPTH.  While there, her weather team produced an award-winning severe weather special “Ahead of the Storm.”  She is a member of the National Weather Association, and has presented award-winning research at its national meetings.





Meteorologist Jessica Burns was born and raised in Michiana, spending most of her life in Dowagiac, MI. Having farmers on her mother’s side of the family, Jessica watched the weather on local news, specifically WSBT, and dreamed of being a broadcast meteorologist ever since the young age of three. Jessica loves using science and communicating it to viewers to help them plan their days, and even save their lives in the event of severe weather.





Meteorologist Bob Werner’s rigorous training in math and science has led to Bob’s recognition by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) as a meteorologist and full Member of the Society. In fact, he says the highlights of his weather career are earning the AMS Seal of Approval in 1988, and the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation, the highest distinction given to a broadcast meteorologist, in 2010.
