Stephanie Abrams is one of the more famous people on television in the field of meteorology. This is thanks to her having once worked with NBC’s Al Roker as co-host of Wake Up With Al and for her work with The Weather Channel, where she is currently co-hosting the morning television program AMHQ: American Morning Headquarters alongside Jen Carfagno and Jim Cantore.
In addition to her work in meteorology, where she is responsible for providing viewers with detailed information about weather conditions in various parts of the world, Stephanie has also worked as a reporter. In 2010, as you know, she reported live from the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Early Life and Education of Stephanie Abrams
Meteorology is not one of the different career paths that you can take in life and that do not require any special education or training. To become a meteorologist, one must have received the necessary training and have at least a Bachelor’s degree in meteorology. Another advantage would be to have a keen interest in the field in order to succeed, something Stephanie Abrams had plenty of as an adult.
Since her youth, Stephanie Abrams has had a certain fascination for science, especially for the study of space and weather phenomena. This led her to visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Museum’s Space Camp at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. She later attended Forest Hill Community High School before enrolling at the University of Florida at Gainesville, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Geography with honors. She also took a minor in mathematics.
After her first degree, Ms. Abrams returned to the school for a second degree. This time she attended Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee, where she met the requirements for a cum laude B.S. degree in Meteorology.

Her professional career began later when she was employed as a morning meteorologist with NBC member organization WTXL in Tallahassee, Florida.
After serving as President of the North Florida Section of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) from 2002 to 2003, Stephanie joined the Weather Channel as a reporter and temp in 2003. After two years, her exemplary work ethic led to her being named co-host of The Weekend View in 2005, marking the beginning of a better career. In 2006, she became a camera meteorologist after being appointed co-host of two shows, Abrams and Bettes: Beyond the Forecast and Weather Center.
Stephanie Abrams’ big breakthrough finally came in 2010 when she covered live from the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada for both AMHQs: American Morning Headquarters and Wake Up With Al. During this time, between 2009 and 2015 to be exact, she was co-host of the NBC show alongside Al Roker.
