A long way from home, Sydney joins WMGM's NBC 40 team as a weekend meteorologist. Sydney grew up on the Central Coast of California in a small town called Atascadero.
Her first thunderstorm experience wasn't until she was sixteen years old and from that day on, she knew exactly what she wanted be when she grew up: a meteorologist.
Sydney attended Penn State University where she received her Bachelors of Science Degree in Meteorology with an emphasis in forecasting and communications. At Penn State, her Wednesday nights were filled with forecasting, hosting, and reporting a weekly show for Central Pennsylvania called "Weather or Not." Also in school, Sydney was a member of the student chapter of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association.
When Sydney is not monitoring the radar, either on the computer or multiple mobile weather apps, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, and the performing arts. She also enjoys taking any opportunity to visit State College, Pennsylvania to visit with friends and cheer or her Nittany Lions. WE ARE!
