Terri Smith became interested in weather at the tender age of four, when she moved to Atlanta, Georgia during the spring thunderstorm season. Fear and fascination of thunderstorms and tornadoes pushed her to study meteorology at Florida State University where she also earned a minor in communications.
Her broadcast career includes working at WALB in Albany, Georgia and WXIA in Atlanta, before joining the On-Camera Meteorology department at The Weather Channel in June 1991.
In the fall of 1995, Terri joined the On-Camera Management Team, working with the Evening On-Camera Meteorologists. Now, she makes the transition to the Radio Department for The Weather Channel, where she combines her talents.
Terri belongs to the American Meteorological Society and served on the AMS Board of Broadcast Meteorology from 1998-2001. Outside of the radio booth, Terri enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, traveling and listening to classical music.
