Cleveland, Ohio

Kelly Dobeck is from Strongsville, Ohio and is excited to be back home forecasting lake effect snow. She knew she wanted to be a meteorologist when she was just a young girl.

Her favorite memories include setting up a weather station on her playground with her dad and watching storms roll in off Lake Erie.

Before making it back to Northeast Ohio, Kelly was tracking tornadoes at KARK/KLRT in Little Rock Arkansas.

She also got a taste of forecasting for the Masters tournament at WRDW/WAGT in Augusta, Georgia.

After spending some time in the south, she's looking forward to being back in her home state, cheering on the Browns, Cavs, and Indians, and eating at some of her favorite local places.

Kelly's forecasting background has taken her many places. From forecasting Orographic Lifting snow in the Carolina Mountains, working for NASA, and ice storm forecasting in the south. She has her degree in atmospheric science and meteorology from The University of North Carolina Asheville.

She also has her amateur radio license. Kelly is thrilled to get back to the forecasting challenges of Lake Erie.
