Later in 1978, Forbes joined the faculty in the Department of Meteorology at Penn State. While there, he taught courses in weather analysis and forecasting, natural disasters, and other topics.

He joined The Weather Channel (TWC) in 1999. As part of his research at Penn State, Forbes was a lead weather forecaster for numerous field research programs around the country.

Forbes announced on July 6, 2018, that he would go into semi-retirement from The Weather Channel but will be back during the spring “in limited capacity”. This decision was partly due to his “colon cancer scare” three years earlier.
