KHQ, SWX - Meet the KHQ Local News, SWX Local Sports Team - NBC Right Now/KNDO/KNDU Tri-Cities, Yakima, WA |

Leslie Lowe's broadcast career began in radio as the co-host of a top rated Adult Contemporary station back in 2001. She transitioned to television in 2003 as a weekend weather anchor and hasn't looked back since. In December of 2008, Leslie joined the KHQ weather team...just in time for record a breaking snow season!

Leslie has been seen and heard in numerous local and national television commercials as well as in motion pictures. And holds her Screen Actors Guild card. In addition she hosted the half-hour television program "Explorer Television" spotlighting areas around the Inland Northwest.

Leslie loves to meet and work with all of the amazing people in our area. And has proudly been involved with Candle Lighters, Spokane SIDS Foundation, Miss Spokane, Project Beauty Share and My Sister’s Closet, Leslie has delivered meals, for Meals on Wheels. And is thrilled to be the emcee for the Spokane Lilac Festival "Family Night" , "Coronation Program" and "Royal Tea Party". Some of her favorite moments have been jumping in to the freezing cold waters of medical Lake and rappelling down the 20 stories of the Bank of America building, all for the love of Special Olympics!

Leslie attended Central Oregon Community College, The American School of Broadcast and Mississippi State University.

When Leslie isn't working she can be found working out in some capacity, she loves running, cycling, Pilates and is hoping to find a little more time to golf! Leslie and her husband have raised their children here and are proud to call Spokane home.

Tuesday Weather Update: Thicker Canopy of Clouds, But Very Little Rain Locally  

Evening/Overnight: Partly to mostly cloudy as those non- threatening, higher based clouds continue to stream in from the south (GREEN)

Wednesday: Count on another warm, mostly cloudy day as a thicker amount of high clouds drift overhead (some sprinkles may fall over the mountains)…Low/High 55°/84° (GREEN)

Thursday: It's milder, with mostly cloudy skies & an isolated late day/evening shower. The primary rain band moves over the Cascade Mountains during the morning & slides eastward (staying just north of I-90) into far eastern WA by late afternoon. The additional moisture will also bring showery weather to the ID Panhandle mountains for the evening… Low/High 57°/79° (GREEN)

FYI: There are about 50,000 flights in America everyday & 8000 jets in the air at any given time. Weather accounts for 36% of airline delays, but, that number is down by 50% since 2003 due to better forecasts & flight planning. Thanks to the Bureau of Transportation for keeping these statistics.

    Without honey bees food supply & economy would take big hit

    Tuesday, September 16 2014 4:58 PM EDT2014-09-16 20:58:17 GMT
    KHQ.COM - Some of the world's busiest workers are honeybees. Honeybees pollinate fruit, nuts and vegetables making them responsible for pollinating 33% of the world's food according to honeybeehaven.com. What's scary, is that they are in trouble. They have been dying off since the mid-1990's all around the world.
