Who Is Kelly Cass – Weather Channel Meteorologist & What Is Her Net Worth?

Weather is one of the most discussed topics among Americans. So, it’s no wonder that gifted TV weather forecasters such as Kelly Cass have so many fans among the country’s television audience. As popularity can easily be monetized, it isn’t out of place for one to wonder how much the meteorologist’s popularity has translated into wealth. This is why we decided to devote this piece to the personality of the media icon. In particular, we are going to find out how much she is worth in addition to other relevant details about her life.

Who Is Kelly Cass?

As already hinted above, Kelly is a professional meteorologist and weather forecaster who currently works for the Weather Channel. Her life’s journey took off on November 27, 1973, when she was born in Poughkeepsie, a city in Hudson Valley, New York. Quite early in life, Kelly’s fascination with the surroundings of Poughkeepsie became obvious. She liked to picnic on the banks of the Hudson River with her friends. Then, in her spare moments, she would just sit and watch the sunset over the horizon. She grew up alongside three siblings whose names and details are hard to come by.

Other details of Kelly Cass’ family, upbringing and basic education background are not available to us. However, her higher education history makes it obvious that she made up her mind from the word go to become who she is today. After graduating from high school, she underwent an Associate of Science program at the Dutchess Community College of the State University of New York in Dutchess County, Poughkeepsie, from where she bagged an A.S. in communication. She then went ahead to crown it with a B.Sc degree in communication at the Hudson Valley Center of Adelphi University. Thereafter, Cass proceeded to Mississippi State University where she passed through a certificate program in Broadcast Meteorology. After that, she went overseas to obtain a degree in International Studies from Yonsei University in South Korea.

With the above academic background, Kelly Cass went into her beloved career of watching and reporting the weather. It is no wonder that today, Kelly is considered a successful journalist. She has a lot of prestige from working with the topnotch climate-centered channel, The Weather Channel, where she has been working since January 2000. Today, she holds the National Weather Association’s Seal of Approval and she is also a bonafide member of the American Meteorological Society.

Her journalism career kicked off with WRNN (known as WTZA-TV then) licensed to the city of Kingston in New York. She first worked there as an associate producer before she became the weeknight weather reporter. Later on, she became the morning weekday weather forecaster at WRGB-TV, a CBS-affiliated virtual and VHF Channel licensed to the city of Schenectady in New York State.

Kelly is happily married to Chris Bee who works as the South East Area Sales Representative for the trucking company Dennison Trailers. The couple shares three children together.

Kelly’s work at WRGB-TV will forever remain a reference point in her career because she first hit the spotlight there when she won the New York State Broadcasting Award for ‘Best Storm Coverage’; this was for her excellent reporting of the blizzards in 1993. That recognition opened a floodgate of media attention towards her and had a number of media houses knocking on her door.

Needless to say, she eventually accepted to work with the channel that represented her field the most, The Weather Channel. Kelly has plied her trade at The Weather Channel since January 2000. Currently, she doubles as The Weather Channel’s on-camera meteorologist as well as the weekend host for America’s Morning Headquarters (AMHQ) on the network.
