Chelsea Brown is a meteorologist for WTVA.
Chelsea joined the WTVA Weather Authority in August 2018.
Some people stumble into a career. In Chelsea's case, meteorology fell into her life. An Amory native, Chelsea's childhood home was missed by a mere 5 miles by the EF5 tornado that devastated Smithville on April 27, 2011.
A year later, a lightning strike was more accurate. While she was at school, her house was hit by lightning, igniting a fire and damaging it beyond repair.
After that, there was no question that she wanted to dedicate her life to weather; but she never planned on TV. She always wanted to go into the Air Force, and now meteorology was the perfect direction for a girl who was "too short and too blind" to be a pilot.
That all changed when she met the love of her life.
Chelsea is an Amory High School and ICC graduate. While at ICC, she was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society.
She is a former WTVA weather intern and is set to graduate from Mississippi State University with her degree in Broadcast Meteorology in May 2019.
She and her husband live in Monroe County with their three furbabies: Hank, Thunder and BB.
