Allergies knock out Tucker Barnes! Mike Thomas to the rescue!

- High levels of pollen can spell disaster for allergy sufferers – especially our own Tucker Barnes – who struggled to make it through the early morning forecasts on Wednesday.

Mold, grass and weed pollen levels were low Wednesday but tree pollen levels were extremely high. With a gravelly voice and stuffy nose – Tucker made it work.

But he couldn’t have made it much further without the help of his old buddy – FOX 5’s own Mike Thomas!



Mike put his voice-over skills to work and gave us his best ‘Tucker Barnes’ impression. You couldn’t even notice it wasn’t really him!

Ok – maybe you could tell just a little. But it’s the thought that counts, Mike!
