Chelsea earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire. She also is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) awarded after an extensive process through the American Meteorological Society.
Following graduation, Chelsea moved to Southeast Ohio to pursue her passion for weather. She worked as the morning meteorologist at WHIZ in Zanesville. After spending a year in Ohio, Chelsea was thrilled to move back to the Ocean State and work right here at ABC6 as the weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter. Since she joined the Stormtracker Weather team in 2011, she’s covered many big weather events like Tropical Storm Irene, Sandy, and the blizzard of February 2013.
In January of 2015, Chelsea took over the weekday morning meteorologist position and you can now catch her Monday through Friday on Good Morning Providence.
When not forecasting the exciting and ever-changing weather of Southern New England, Chelsea can be found enjoying everything else the area has to offer. Her favorite pastimes include sailing, dancing, skiing, traveling, and spending as much time as she can at our amazing beaches! Working in Rhode Island means so much to Chelsea as she can also spend
time with her tight-knit family and close group of friends.
Chelsea is a member of The American Meteorological Society and can be found sharing her passion for weather with local students while visiting schools across the area.
