Andrea is the Morning Meteorologist at WPMT FOX43. She’s loved everything involving the wonders and whys of weather since age 10.

Her love for weather led her to Penn State, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Meteorology in 2009. She spent her first three years in Binghamton, NY at two television stations. She worked at FOX40 WICZ-TV for about a year, and then she worked an additional two years at WBNG-TV. She experienced lake effect snow, severe weather, snow storms, and more!

Andrea is happy to be back in Pennsylvania! She grew up in a small suburb just outside Philadelphia, so she’s always cheering on the Phillies, the Eagles, and the Penn State Nittany Lions! During her spare time, she enjoys taking weather related photos or videos, and then sharing them with others! Weather isn’t her only interest—she loves hanging with her pet rabbits, Oreo Doppler and Dolce Glaze, reading, tasting craft beers, and cooking.

If you have any questions, she’s more than happy to hear from you! Send an e-mail (amichaels@fox43.com), or find her on Facebook and Twitter to share in her weather fun!
