Arizona State University – BS in Meteorology
Erika Lopez joins WeatherNation after working in Victoria, Texas as the weekend meteorologist for KAVU. She is a weather and adrenaline junkie. Erika is no stranger to severe weather across the country as she has experience forecasting from coast to coast while as a student at Penn State University in the northeast, and as a native Phoenician in the desert southwest finishing her Bachelors degree in Meteorology at Arizona State University. Erika Lopez’s love for weather began as a little girl. She always had her local news stations on TV and admired how knowledgeable and graceful the meteorologist were. Since she could remember, she knew this is what she wanted to do in life and she is honored to be able to be a part of the WeatherNation team today. In her free time, Erika loves catching flights back home to spend time with her family in Arizona. She is a gym rat and salsa dancing lover. She also enjoys cooking and trying new restaurants.
