stephanie guckawitch weather/stephanie yuckavitch weather/stephanie vukovich weather: Turns out my fiancée meant EMILY VUKOVIC which you will notice is a completely different name than the one she had me searching for. I was talking about a different Weather Network anchor anyway. One who doesn’t even merit a bio on the Weather Network’s website.
