Kellie McGlynn

Meteorologist

Wilmington, NC

Kellie joined the WECT Weather Team in October of 2016.

She was born and raised in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania - also known as the Christmas City. After Winter Storm Jonas dumped a record snowfall of over 30 inches this winter, she is thrilled to be in Wilmington forecasting tropical weather now!

Kellie always had a fascination with weather. As a child, she will never forget when the local TV meteorologist came to her elementary school and now she’s turned her curiosity into her career.

Kellie graduated with a broadcasting degree from Millersville University and shortly after earned a certificate in Operational and Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She interned at WFMZ in Allentown, PA (with the meteorologist who visited her school) and this past summer she was a meteorology intern at FOX 29 in Philadelphia, PA.

She enjoys (trying to) cook, anything that is adrenaline-pumping and all things coastal.
