Mike Spiel was born and raised in the Hudson River Valley of New York.  Mike attended St. Louis University where he earned a B.S. in Meteorology.  Mike’s favorite weather forecaster while growing up was Gordon Barnes.  He worked at WCBS in New York for many years.  Speaking for forecasting, since graduating from St. Louis University, Mike handles stations in  the Hudson Valley of New York and Fox Valley Region of Chicago.

Mike enjoys spending time with his wife Tara and kids  – Zachary and Rachel.  Mike is a diehard fan of the Mets,  Jets, Knicks and Rangers.  Needless to say, there hasn’t been much to root for recently for most of  these teams!

Mike’s first warning forecast can be heard around the clock on Pocono 96-7
