How rich is Jen Carfagno? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1.5 million, earned through a successful career as a meteorologist. She has been active with The Weather Channel since completing her college education, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Jen grew up in her hometown of Collegeville, and attended Perkiomen Valley High School. During her time there, she served as a lifeguard at the school’s swimming pool, and also had the task of monitoring weather conditions. This started to develop her interest in weather forecasting, and then that she would pursue it as a career. After matriculating in 1994, she attended Penn State University and completed a degree in meteorology four years later. During her final year at Penn State, she had already set her sights on a television career by doing her internship at “The Weather Channel”, which helped her gain experience and exposure to the job. Soon after graduating, she became a full-time staff member of The Weather Channel.
The Weather Channel
Thanks to Carfagno’s prior experience as an intern, she didn’t have much of a problem transitioning to her new role, and her confidence built quickly. She participated in the network’s on-camera meteorologist apprenticeship program, on which she earned screen time during the weekends. Over the next few years, she would serve as both an on- and off-air reporter for the network. She also enjoys making appearances at schools to talk about weather and science. One of her favorite weather measurements is dewpoints, and on The Weather Channel, she is often referred to as the “Dewpoint Diva”.
In 2013, she and Alex Wallace introduced new graphics for the network called the “Weather All the Time” graphics as a part of the program “Weather Center Live”. The duo would continue to anchor the program for the next three years, during which they often worked during the early mornings of Thursday and Friday, as well as during weekend mornings. The main program that she is a part of is “AMHQ: America’s Morning Headquarters” which focuses on morning weather conditions as well as some news from around the country. However, in recent years, the time for it has been cut back due to “Weather Center Live”.
For her personal life, it is known that Jen has been married to Neil Carfagno since the mid-2000s. Nothing much is known about her husband’s work or past, except that they’ve appeared together online in various social media posts.

During her free time, Jen enjoys various adventurous activities such as hiking, travelling, and swimming. She also frequently runs, relaxes at the beach, or does gardening.
She is also involved in various charity events, mostly run by The Weather Channel. One of her most notable works was to sell jackets to help a local charity in Atlanta.
