Susana Marbelli Harbert was born in Nochistlan, Zacatecas Mexico and immigrated to Texas at the age of two.
She grew up in a small town just outside of the DFW metroplex (Everman, Texas), and is the youngest of seven siblings.
Susana attended Texas A&M University in College Station obtaining her bachelor’s degree in science. Majoring in atmospheric science (meteorology) & oceanography.
During her time there she partook in a lot of extracurricular activities and even joined a group of students who storm chase during the spring season.
She also underwent research with Dr. Steven DiMarco for tracking ocean currents in the Gulf of Mexico. During her junior semester, she interned for KRBC & Telemundo here in Abilene, Texas.
Susana recently got married to her college roommate and best friend, Richard, during the winter storm of 2021.
A historic day that brought on many challenges to many Texans, one that she says she will remember for many lifetimes to come.
The two met in college station and have been together since December of 2015.
She and Richard have a loving, furry friend by the name of “Buster”, an adorable brindle dachshund.
Rescued out in Lubbock Tx, this 9-year-old dachshund makes their lives a bit brighter.
When Susana isn’t tied up by a storm, you can usually find her binge-watching the latest tv series on Netflix, shopping, or traveling to go see her husband.
Dedication & dependability are what Susana strives for every time she gives her forecast for the big country & the heartland.
