Meteorologist Ashley Baylor joined WAVY TV 10/FOX 43 and the Super Doppler 10 Weather Team in January 2015. You can see Ashley on weekend evenings and filling in during the week.
Before coming to Hampton Roads, Ashley spent four years as the weekday morning meteorologist at WWLP in Springfield, Massachusetts. Since Massachusetts is no stranger to severe weather, she has covered a broad range of weather phenomena, from tornadoes and microbursts to hurricanes and Nor’easters. Some of her most memorable storms include, Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Irene, the Halloween Nor’easter, and the February Nor’easter of 2013.
In addition to weather, Ashley has had the opportunity to cover major New England sporting events, including the 2013 World Series, the 2013 AFC Championship game, and Opening Day at Fenway Park. Prior to WWLP, Ashley spent three years as the weekday evening meteorologist at WEAU in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
In 2014 and 2013, Ashley was voted “Best Meteorologist” by the Valley Advocate. In the same years, she was also voted “Favorite Meteorologist” in the Reader Raves poll by The Republican/Masslive.com. In 2008, she won an honorable mention for her photo of lenticular clouds that was published in the September issue of WeatherWise Magazine.
“I’ve had an interest in weather since I was 9 years old. I moved to Charleston, South Carolina the year after Hurricane Hugo made landfall there. Even though I didn’t live through Hugo, the devastation was still visible a year later. In 1992, still living in Charleston, Hurricane Andrew slammed into southern Florida. I remember being glued to the TV, watching the coverage… I’ve been hooked ever since!”
Ashley is a member of the National Weather Association and graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a degree in Broadcast Meteorology.
Ashley is a huge Patriots fan – she and her husband got married in front of Gillette Stadium in Foxborough! They live with their rescue pup, Bodie and two Siamese cats, Chase and Brooklyn. Ashley also enjoys beaches, golf, and zoos.
