Meteorologist Brooks Garner joined FOX 35 in June 2021 – and has more than 20 years of TV broadcasting and weather expertise, including tracking severe weather, tornadoes, tropical storms, and hurricanes. He's part of the FOX 35 Good Day Orlando team, which airs Monday - Friday, 4 a.m. - 10 a.m.

He holds seals of approval from both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. His weather coverage has earned him an Edward R. Murrow Award, several Emmy Awards, and an AP Award.

He's tracked storms in Boston, Massachusetts; Denver, Colorado; Columbia, South Carolina; Houston, Texas; Tampa – and now Orlando, Florida. 

Here in Orlando, Garner has been part of FOX 35's wall-to-wall coverage of the devastating hurricanes Ian, Nicole, and Idalia. During Hurricane Sandy (Oct. 2012), he flew with NOAA's Hurricane Hunters inside the storm. He also covered Hurricane Harvey (2017), which ravaged parts of Louisiana and Texas.

He lives in Central Florida with his wife, Erica, their three children, and two equally energetic shepherds. He loves visiting local schools for FOX 35's Storm School series, and educating and teaching about weather in terms that are easy to understand, and meeting people in the community.

Garner also launched the FOX 35 Weather Spotters Network, where people at home can share their weather observations with the FOX 35 Storm Team. How much rain fell at your house? Is it sunny, cloudy, rainy, or stormy? Garner may include that info in an upcoming weather forecast.
