Greetings, everyone! I’m the Weekend Meteorologist at WPMT FOX43. I’ve loved everything involving the wonders and whys of weather since age 10.

My love for weather led me to Penn State, where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree back in 2009. I spent my first three years after college in Binghamton, NY at two television stations. I worked at Fox40 WICZ-TV for about a year, and then I worked an additional two years at WBNG-TV. The weather I forecasted during my time along the Twin Tiers satisfied the weather nerd inside of me. I forecasted lake effect snow, severe weather, snow storms, and more!

I’m excited to be back in Pennsylvania! I grew up in a small suburb just outside Philadelphia, so I’m thrilled to be closer to home and family. During my spare time, I enjoy taking weather related photos or videos, and then I share them with others! Weather isn’t my only interest—I love to read, work out, taste craft beers, and cook. Cooking is my favorite way to occupy my free time, and my specialty is Italian! I also enjoy football and baseball. I’m always cheering on the Phillies, Eagles, and Penn State Nittany Lions!

If you have any questions, I’m more than happy to hear from you! Be sure to shoot me an e-mail (amichaels@fox43.com), or find me on Facebook and Twitter to share in my weather fun!
