Greg is always on the lookout for new ways to improve his weather expertise. Even in his spare time, he prefers to work and conduct research on his favorite subjects, which include incredible tornadoes and storms. His research includes assessing the damage left behind by 300 tornadoes and wind storms, including Hurricane Andrew and Typhoon Paka. There are no rumors of his having any extramarital romances or partnerships. Working makes him happy, so instead of looking for a wife, he pursues his favorite vocation.


Greg does not have a child because he is not married or in a relationship.

Today living a retired life

Greg’s health took a turn for the worst in May 2014, when he was diagnosed with colon cancer, a fatal condition. However, he has reason to be hopeful because his cancer has not spread throughout his body and is treatable. Greg chose to work part-time rather than full-time at ‘The Weather Channel,’ due to his health concerns. On July 6, 2018, he decided to take a sabbatical from his job and announced that he would be leaving the Weather Channel for an extended period of time. He did, however, say that he would return to the profession before he left. Since then, there has been no word on whether he will return to the channel; he may now be happily retired at his Atlanta home. He has also indicated his wish to travel on his 66th birthday. If his health improves, he may be able to travel and live his life to the fullest.


Forbes has kept his personal life a closely guarded secret. As a result, his personal life has remained a contentious issue. Some claimed he was married, while others claimed he was divorced. But they’d all heard the rumors before. The truth is that he never received his weeding.
