The forecast for the week of Jan. 11 holds a 100 percent chance of nostalgia: former ABC News meteorologist Sam Champion will be returning to his Good Morning America roots for the week to fill in during current GMA meteorologist Ginger Zee’s maternity leave.

Champion served as the meteorologist for Good Morning America for seven years, from 2006 to 2013. At the end of 2013, Champion left the morning show’s weather department in the hands of Ginger Zee, as he went on to host shows on The Weather Channel. Zee gave birth to her son Aiden last month, and while she’s on her maternity leave, Champion and ABC News’ Rob Marciano will deliver the weather reports.
