Beloved ABC News Breakfast weatherman Nate Byrne is presenting his daily forecasts from home after testing positive for Covid.

On Thursday morning, Nate shared a photo of his home setup to Twitter.

“I’m WFI (working from isolation) for the rest of the week,” Nate tweeted.

“I seem to have ALL of the COVID, yet none of the symptoms.

“But the weather is turning, so I wouldn’t be anywhere other than on @BreakfastNews.”

Nate Byrne told his News Breakfast co-hosts he tested for Covid and returned a “roaring COVID-positive” result this week.

“I’m in isolation at the moment in, actually, a beautiful little one-bed joint, there’s not much to it,” he said.

“I’m in isolation because I tested before work on Monday and came back with a roaring COVID-positive.

“There’s big weather going on at the moment, obviously, and you know that I wouldn’t be happy if I couldn’t help out when it’s needed.

“Here I am, 100% fighting fit. I’m not able to be with you, sadly, but ready to go, especially weather-wise.”
