It all began at WBOY in Clarksburg, WV. Less than a year later, she went to WFMZ in Allentown, PA where she realized just what a southern girl she was. She had to come back south to get warm and ended up in Greensboro at WFMY. She actually left the business for a year to work for the American Red Cross but found her way back to TV and is thrilled to be at WBTV. Her parents are pretty glad too. They can watch her in Hickory.
Honors: AMS Seal of Approval. She also earned the AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation.
Today will be a lot like yesterday. Highs today will be in the low to mid 90s and the humidity isn’t going anywhere. It will feel like it is closer to 100° this afternoon – so be careful out there! There is a 30% chance for a few thunderstorms.

A Code Orange Action Day has been issued for Monday concerning elevated levels of ground level ozone. If you are sensitive to poor air quality, try and stay indoors and limit your exposure especially during the afternoon and early evening hours.
A cold front will move through on Tuesday. It will be close enough today that the mountains could see a few rounds of showers or thunderstorms. For that reason, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Ashe and Watauga today.
T.S. Barry is heading for the Louisiana coast and may strengthen to a hurricane before making landfall today. The biggest concern will be for very heavy rain over areas that do not need any more water right now.
