Amy Sweezey is an award-winning Broadcast Meteorologist, children’s book author, and mom of three. For more than 20 years, she has delivered daily forecasts on television, and spoken to countless groups of children about weather. Amy joined the WESH-2 News team in Central Florida in August 2002. She can be seen on WESH-2 News Sunrise from 4:30-7:00 AM and on WKCF CW-18 from 7:00-9:00 AM, Monday through Friday.
Amy moved to the Orlando area from Michigan, where she worked forecasting blizzards and severe weather at WWMT-TV (CBS) in Kalamazoo. She also worked at WSJV-TV in South Bend, Indiana, and in both radio and television in Chicago, Illinois.
Amy graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago (Go Ramblers!) before continuing her meteorological studies at Mississippi State University. She holds the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) seal awarded by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the National Weather Association (NWA) Broadcast Seal of Approval. She is a proud recipient of “Best Weathercast” and “Best Weather Reporting” awards from the Florida Associated Press, and her children’s book, Let’s Talk Weather, TV Forecasting: Behind the Scenes, was awarded a GOLD MEDAL in the Florida Authors & Publishers Association President’s Book Awards in 2018.
With three children, Amy doesn’t have much free time, but with the little bit she does have, she enjoys reading and going to the beach (or pool). A self-proclaimed introvert who talks for a living, Amy loves to find quiet space whenever possible, and just…. be.
