It's easy to come to work everyday when you love what you do. That’s how Todd feels about weather forecasting. A graduate of SUNY Brockport, Todd has been forecasting weather on Time Warner Cable News for several years and loves its many challenges.

“We are right in the middle of everything here, so you get a wide variety of forecasting challenges from major winter storms and lake-effect snow to severe thunderstorms and even the occasional tornado,” Todd says. Todd's continuous live coverage of a tornado that struck Elmira in 2012 earned him a First Place award from the Syracuse Press Club for best weather reporting.

Vanessa received her bachelor's degree in meteorology from SUNY Oswego and is no stranger to the changeable weather of our area. She grew up in a small town just south of Syracuse and has spent her whole life watching the seasons change and the weather activity here in Central New York.

Her passion for weather was fueled by her fascination with tornadoes from a very young age. She fulfilled her dream to see a tornado when she spent a few weeks in “Tornado Alley” chasing twisters with her fellow classmates at Oswego.

When Vanessa is not forecasting the weather, she loves to be outside hiking, running, or relaxing. She spends much of her free time with her husband Matt and their two cats Fergie and Floopie! Watch for Vanessa's Weather on the 1s reports mornings on Time Warner Cable News.
