Rachel Coulter is the newest meteorologist on the WBTV weather team and is excited to be coming back to her home state of North Carolina!
After spending the first ten years of her life in Wisconsin, Rachel and her family moved to Wake Forest, North Carolina, where her desire to become a meteorologist grew.
Rachel went on to graduate from Millersville University in 2015 with a B.S. Degree in Meteorology and also had the opportunity to play on the women’s basketball team for a few years.
Even though she started school wanting to go into research, a couple of internships at WRAL and WGAL and a student-run show, Weather Watch, revealed a love for forecasting and communicating the weather to others that remains today.
Rachel is coming to Charlotte from Jackson, Mississippi, where she spent the past three years at WBTV’s sister station, WLBT. The three years prior were spent at KAIT, in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
After seeing her fair share of severe weather events in the Mid and Deep South, Rachel looks forward to the new forecasting challenges the Carolinas have to offer! She is also eager to learn from the best and work alongside the amazing team of meteorologists at WBTV.
