Kaylee Wendt is a born and raised Western New Yorker. Aside from her time spent earning her Bachelors of Science degree in Meteorology and Broadcast Meteorology minor at SUNY Brockport, Kaylee has always called Niagara County home.

When it comes to tracking the Western New York weather, it’s safe to say Kaylee is as dedicated as they come.

Prior to joining the Spectrum News 1 team, Kaylee once spent two full week’s storm chasing, where she witnessed hail the size of golf balls and a wedge tornado, to name a few. Today, Kaylee is a proud meteorologist for Spectrum News Buffalo.

Throughout Kaylee’s time tracking the weather, her most memorable story comes from her coverage of multiple tornadoes touching down in Erie County. Kaylee recalls the experience as scary, yet incredibly rewarding. She is proud of the fact that her in-depth coverage helped to prevent injuries and likely saved lives. 

When Kaylee isn’t informing her community of the latest weather updates, she’s busy planning her next trip. Or – in the summer months, you can find her somewhere on the water, usually boating, swimming and kayaking!
