Erika Martin

Greater Hartford native Erika Martin is happy to be back home, as a member of WTNH's Storm Team 8.

Erika grew up watching WTNH and remembers sitting in her grandmother's living room, with her family, hanging on every single Hurricane Gloria update -- until the power went out! She's happy that her family can now tune in to her weekday evening forecasts, for weather updates, and watch her doing what she loves.

Erika attended S.S.Cyril & Methodius, in Hartford, and Northfield Mount Hermon preparatory school in Massachusetts.

A degreed meteorologist, she has previously forecasted the weather for the Sierra Nevada region, San Francisco's Bay Area, and Western Massachusetts.

Erika began her college career at NYU, but completed her degree in Broadcast Journalism with an emphasis in Production at Santa Monica College. Erika has earned a B.S. in Meteorology from Mississippi State University, and is currently preparing for The CBM Seal. She has also been accepted into a Masters program in Meteorology and will begin classes next fall.

Erika loves spending time with her family, her husband Rob, practicing Yoga, working out big time, reading anything published by Hay House, dinner with good friends, and helping her girlfriends plan their weddings!

She also has a lifestyle and weather blog: fairweatherfashion.wordpress.com

Her professional affiliations include: AMS, SPJ, NAHJ, AFTRA, SESAC
