Watch: Meteorologist Gets Scare From Giant Spider Live On Air

This is one forecast meteorologist Kristi Gordon didn’t see coming.

The Canadian weather presenter jumped in fright as she noticed a giant spider crawl across the screen. Of course, it was nowhere near her in real life — the creepy crawly darted across an outside broadcast weather cam — but the shock was clear.

Gordon shrieked, “Oh my gosh, that was creepy!”

Her laughing Global BC colleagues, off air, were quick to reassure Gordon that the creepy-crawly was not in studio!

“Of course it had to be right on my head!” Gordon added. “I hate it, I can’t stand it.”

The video has gone viral around the world, racking up more than two million views on YouTube.

Gordon took to Twitter soon after the on-air incident, describing it as been “embarrassing” to one fan who told her the encounter with the spider provided the “best noon weather forecast ever!”
