Fort Worth-based NBC5 is adding a fifth meteorologist with a weather-ready surname.
Remeisha Shade will be joining the station from WAFF-TV in Huntsville, Ala., where she's been the weekend forecaster since August 2006. That's a mega market jump, from No. 81 to No. 5.
Shade also is a former Miss Florida State University (circa 2003) who worked at KBMT-TV in Beaumont, TX for three years before heading to Alabama. Before that she was a meteorology intern at The Weather Channel.
NBC5's other temperature takers are chief meteorologist David Finfrock, Jennifer Lopez, Samantha Davies and Grant Johnston. No word yet on when Shade starts and what shifts she'll work. She is leaving WAFF at the end of November.
