Each Groundhog Day, The Weather Discovery Center honors individuals who have advanced the knowledge of weather science, climatology, and meteorology.
As Hall of Fame members, they help to represent and advance the mission of the Weather Discovery Center, which is to help visitors explore and understand the science behind weather phenomena.
Join us in February as we induct our newest Hall of Fame member!
2009 Inductee: Stephanie Abrams
Stephanie Abrams is co-host of Abrams and Bettes - Beyond the Forecast and Evening Edition on The Weather Channel. Growing up in south Florida she is no stranger to hurricanes. After receiving a B.S. in Meteorology from Florida State University and a B. S. in Geography from the University of Florida she began her career as the morning meteorologist at WTXL in Tallahassee.
After joining The Weather Channel, she provided in-the-field reports from wherever the weather was having the biggest impact—flooding in New York, tornadoes in Illinois, snowstorms in the Northeast. Her coverage of Hurricane Katrina was extensive. “When I was in Mississippi right after landfall, I couldn’t believe the destruction I was seeing was actually real.”
