Britney Hamilton was born in Los Angeles and raised in North Carolina. Her interest in weather was sparked in middle school when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. She wanted to know everything about hurricanes – structure, forecasting, and impacts. This early interest in hurricanes grew into a full-fledged love for weather.
Britney graduated from Providence High School in Charlotte and attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she received a meteorology degree with minors in mathematics and Spanish. She moved to Greensboro to attend North Carolina A&T State University where she developed plenty of AGGIE PRIDE and received a master’s degree in physics with a concentration in atmospheric science.
After grad school, Britney worked as a meteorologist in Charlotte for 4 years. She's covered countless severe weather outbreaks, hurricanes, winter storms, etc. She also spent time in Atlanta covering weather across the country and sometimes, across the globe.
When she's not geeking out about weather and physics, Britney enjoys experimenting with recipes, trying new restaurants, or on a quick getaway.
Britney is excited to be back in North Carolina and forecasting for an area that played such a big role in her life.
