Tracey Anthony

Meteorologist

Education

Bachelor of Science in Meteorology St. Cloud State University

Born and raised in Minnesota, Tracey enjoys being outdoors no matter the temperature, as long as the sun is out! Being outdoors, spending time on the lake and spending time with her two Yorkies Elvis & Gus are some of her favorite things to do. Tracey joined the WeatherNation team as an intern when she was still attending college at St. Cloud State. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology, Tracey became an Associate Producer at WeatherNation in Minneapolis and juggled the new job while she cheered for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2013 season. Next, Tracey started her on-air career at WTAP in Parkersburg, WV as the Morning Meteorologist, but after eight short months, she rejoined the WeatherNation team. “I missed doing weather 24/7 and missed working side-by-side other meteorologists.”

Q&A with Tracey Anthony

What inspired you to become a meteorologist and pursue a career as an on-air weathercaster?
Weather is something that always fascinated me but was something I never considered making a career out of. A coworker of mine mentioned he was studying the weather and it was like a light bulb went off in my head. That is what I wanted to do and I was determined to do it. I transferred that summer and switched my major.
What is your most memorable weather experience?
When I was little, I was extremely afraid of storms. My dad's house was taken in a tornado when he was ten and I remember my mom always calming me down by telling me there was no way dad could be in two tornadoes in one lifetime. Now, I know how wrong that statement was but, it always made me feel safe.
Outside of weather what are your hobbies and life interests?
I love being outdoors and being around people. I like staying active, working out and teaching dance. I think it is important to keep challenging yourself by trying new things to get out of your comfort zone.
Besides your parents who has influenced you the most in your life?
I look up to my two older sisters a lot. Their opinions mean the world to me.
What is a little known fact about you?
I'm pretty sure I was an expert at making mac & cheese by the time I was 7. (I don't think that is much of a secret.)
What are your hopes and dreams for the profession of weather?
To be happy. Goals change throughout your life but life is too short to be anything but happy.
