“Weather has been my passion since childhood,” said Tammie. “I was hooked when my grandfather took me flying in a small plane and there was no turning back when I saw my first tornado. From storm chasing to blizzards to hurricanes, I love forecasting and sharing the weather story. It has been a joy and honor to call Chicago home for more than 16 years. Now, I’m excited for the next chapter in my life to unfold in Philadelphia. I was born in Pennsylvania so this is a homecoming of sorts.”
