Meteorologist Christina Edwards joined the WHNT News 19 Weather Team in September 2015.
Prior to moving to Huntsville, Christina was a longtime resident of Atlanta, Georgia, where she experienced a wide range of wild weather.
In fact, Christina will never forget her first experience observing thundersnow as the Blizzard of ’93 (also known as the “Storm of the Century”) dropped nearly 3 feet of snow in her neighborhood.
Fifteen years later, Christina vividly recalls watching an electrified thunderstorm heading south along I-75 on a warm, March evening; minutes later, that thunderstorm produced an EF-2 tornado in the heart of Atlanta, just two miles from where she lived.
Christina’s passion for science began at a young age, when she would watch the clouds for signs of changing weather patterns and produce homemade “weather forecasts” on poster boards for family and friends. That passion helped propel Christina towards a B.S. in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences from the Georgia Institute of Technology. After graduating from college, Christina worked as a digital meteorologist for The Weather Channel and weather.com as well as a weather producer for WSB-TV in Atlanta.
Christina is active in the weather community as a Boy Scout Weather Merit Badge counselor as well as a member of the American Meteorological Society.
When Christina is not watching the skies, she enjoys watching college football. Her favorite teams are the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets… and whoever is playing the University of Georgia. No matter the school, Christina always cheers on the marching band: She marched the sousaphone in her high school as well as college bands, and she is a member of the co-ed marching band fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi.
