Weekend Meteorologist

Madeline Sky

Posted:

Madeline joined the WQOW team in January of 2012 as weekend meteorologist. Prior to working at News 18, Madeline interned at WMTV in Madison, WI and WGN in Chicago, IL.

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Madeline loves Midwestern weather and everything the four seasons have to offer. Madeline has had her eyes glued to the sky since childhood and in third grade recited a poem about thunderstorms during her first public speaking appearance. While she never dreamed that she would become an on-air meteorologist, Madeline acknowledges that there were signs early on.

Madeline graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a Bachelor of Science degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. As a student she did independent research on snowflake formation at the Storm Peak Laboratory in Steamboat Springs, CO, and saw her first tornado during a severe weather field study class with Valparaiso University.

In her free time, Madeline enjoys storm chasing, hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, skiing, reading, tabletop gaming, making elaborate costumes, and being with her fiancé and their little dog.
