When we last saw neighborhood meteorologist Colleen Coyle, she was leaving ABC affiliate WFAA after nine years at the station.

In January, the Channel 8 weather woman had taken a leave of absence as she and her husband adopted their first child. But as she prepared for her second adoption leave in July, she decided to leave the station for good.

Now she’s back on the tube as a freelance meteorologist for the Weather Channel.

In February, she posted on Facebook that she was training and shadowing. She finally made her debut this week. Catch her with Jacqui Jeras and Chris Bruin from 1-5 p.m. on Weather Center Live.
