Meaghan ThomasMeaghan was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in the suburb of Johns Creek. Her passion for broadcasting and meteorology became apparent in middle school and from that she has never deviated.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast News and Geography from the University of Alabama. As an undergraduate Meaghan became a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. She also became a certified storm spotter. Meaghan experienced, first hand, the devastating tornado outbreak on April 27, 2011. This experience further reinforced her desire to learn more about what causes such atmospheric events.

Meaghan completed her master’s degree in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. While attending MSU, she was a teaching assistant in the Department of Communications. She also accompanied a group of storm chasers into the Great Plains where she personally experienced the EF-3 El-Reno, Oklahoma tornado, EF-4 Bennington, Kansas tornado, and 5.25 inch hail. Her pictures of the phenomenon were featured on CNN, Good Morning America and ABC Nightly News.

That training paid off when Meaghan started work as a meteorologist at WCBI, the CBS affiliate, in Columbus, MS. She gained valuable experience tracking severe weather through eastern Mississippi and into western Alabama. Her next goal is to earn the prestigious CBM and NWA seal of approval.

Meaghan’s personal time is spent with her Pomeranian, Daisy, enjoying family, good food, CrossFit, traveling, and cheering on the Alabama Crimson Tide.

She is currently the Weekend Meteorologist at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama. Please like her Facebook page: Meteorologist Meaghan Thomas and follow her on Twitter @MegTom_WX for all your weather updates!
