Carol Reed (1925 or 1926 – June 4, 1970), always introduced as "Carol Reed, the weather girl", presented the weather portion of the evening newscasts on WCBS-TV in New York City from 1952 to 1964. Not trained in meteorology, she nevertheless proved popular with viewers because of her cheerful demeanor and her characteristic signoff, "Good night and have a happy!"

After her run on channel 2 ended, she hosted a radio show on WCBS (AM) prior to its changeover to its current all-news format.

She died of cancer on June 4, 1970, in Mamaroneck, New York at age 44.
