NBC News meteorologist Dylan Dreyer is leaving “Weekend Today” — but she’ll still be part of the show’s weekday family.

Dreyer has been a co-anchor of the Saturday editions of “Today” for about 10 years.

She holds a meteorology degree from Rutgers and provides weather reporting across NBC News platforms throughout the entire week, but has also branched out into more general co-anchoring duties as well, including conducting interviews, participating in segments and introducing stories.

Dreyer will continue to co-anchor “Today Third Hour,” the weekday show that replaced “Megyn Kelly Today” after it was canceled in 2018.

She will also continue reporting on weather and climate across NBC and fill in for Al Roker on “Today.”

Dreyer noted that in the decade since she’s been assigned to “Weekend Today,” she has gotten married and had three children, which is one of the primary motivations for departing the weekend shift, which often meant she was working six days a week.

She was most recently off the air while on maternity leave after giving birth to a son, Russell.
