There’s been yet another meteorologist switcheroo at one of Austin’s TV stations.

This time, it’s at KXAN, where Natalie Ferrari signed on over the holidays, handling weekend morning weather.

Ferrari arrives from KBTX, the CBS affiliate in Bryan/College Station. Before that, she spent time at a station in Abilene.

With her arrival, Rosie Newberry, who had been KXAN’s weekend morning meteorologist, slides to weekend evenings. Mark Monstrola vacated that spot when he took a job at the Fox affiliate in Denver late last year.

Ferrari’s hiring is the latest in flurry of weekend weather shifts at local stations in the past year. Newberry, for instance, arrived here in January 2015 from Columbia, Mo.

Over at KVUE, weekend evening meteorologist Lynae Miyer left and was replaced by weekend morning meteorologist Jared Plushnick. Plushnick’s replacement on the Saturday and Sunday early-bird shift is Nathan Gogo, who comes from Waco’s CBS affiliate.

KEYE added meteorologist Collin Myers to its weekend lineup after Jordan Steele shifted to the station’s weekday morning newscast and Fox-owned KTBC hired Chelsea Andrews to replace Scott Prinsen, who, like Miyer, left the TV business.

Got all that? Good.
