Marisa Woloszyn joined KEZI 9 News as the Weekend Meteorologist in March 2012, and was promoted to Chief Meteorologist in December of 2014.
Marisa is an AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, the highest certification for an on-air meteorologist. She has a master’s degree in Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences from Michigan State University.
Marisa is from Detroit, Michigan, and being from the Midwest, it’s no surprise to her how quickly the weather can change. Her fascination of severe weather events and why they happen is what originally drew her to a career in meteorology. She soon realized that all weather can be fascinating, including "simple" aspects like clouds. She loves all things weather and enjoys sharing her passion with viewers every night.
Stone crops can be used as groundcover, for boarders, or in containers. They are a great way to keep color in your yard as we transition to fall.
Fall is a great time to clean up dying summer plants and to plant new plants for next spring.
Black Mondo Grass and Japanese Blood Grass like shady spots in the yard, but they can be a great accent with all the blacks, yellows, and reds.
They can be easily propagated by ripping off a stem or a leaf and planting it in loose potting soil.
Monsteras are very easy to take care of. They will pretty much grow anywhere in your home, except you don't want to put them in an extremely bright spot like up against a window.
Rose of Sharon loses its leaves in the winter, and then in the spring it leafs out and then flowers in the summer. Hibiscus need a sunny location and a lot of water when they start to flower.
The great thing about Phlox is after a quick dead head and it will send up two to three more blooms in its place and you can continue to extend that color even farther into summer.
Poinsettias are planted in July and August and are misted every two hours for the first two week when the plant roots into the container.
A great way to choose plants for a garden is to first choose a theme. A Japanese-inspired garden works great in Oregon because our climates are so similar.
Dead-nettle is a great type of plant for shade and part sun spots in your yard.
