Our region of New York is not known for stability, but extremes! Learn from meteorologist Kate Thornton from NewsChannel 9, as she explains what it takes to predict the weather in Central New York and how our climate has changed over the years
Kate is an award winning meteorologist who has been forecasting the weather in upstate New York for more than a decade. She’s forecasted everything from tropical storms with flooding rains, tornadoes, blizzards, sunny stretches, and of course lake effect snow. A life-long Upstate New Yorker, Kate calls the small village of Saugerties in the Mid-Hudson Valley her hometown. That’s where her love for weather sparked at just 10 years old. She pursued her love of weather at the University at Albany, graduating in 2009 with a bachelor’s in Meteorology and minors in Geography, Business, and obtaining a GIS certificate. She later continued her studies in the broadcast field and attended the New School of Radio and Television where she completed the broadcast journalism program with top honors. Before coming to WSYR-TV, Kate started her broadcast career from just down I-81 as the Weekend Meteorologist/Weekday Multi-Media Journalist for WICZ-TV Fox40 in Binghamton, NY.
