Thursday is a sad day for the NewsChannel 5 family since it's Meteorologist Kait Parker's last day working here.
We will miss her so much, and we know you all will too. The good news is that Kait will continue to be a part of our family via NBC and we will look forward to seeing her on WPTV for years to come.
Kait posted the following thoughts about her departure on her Facebook page:
"In my 3+ years here I have had the pleasure of working with incredible people. They became my friends and some even my family while so far away from my own. This magnificent group of colleagues taught me, pushed me to be my best...I will carry bits and pieces of them in my new adventure at The Weather Channel.
Florida, you have given me best friends, more freckles (I didn't think that was possible!), and skills to teach a dog to surf. What an amazing place to call home! I will be back to visit as soon as possible but until then you can find me on The Weather Channel!"
