Kate Thornton joined the NewsChannel 9 Storm Team as the Weekend Meteorologist in January 2014.

Kate is no stranger to Central New York's ever changing weather. Kate comes to Syracuse from just down the road where she was the Weekend Meteorologist/Weekday Multi-Media Journalist for WICZ Fox40 in Binghamton, NY for 3.5 years.

Besides meeting her fiancé there, Kate's most memorable event in the Southern Tier was extensively covering record flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. She has also been in the field covering various topics and issues that matter to the community.

Kate calls the small town of Saugerties in the Hudson Valley her hometown. She graduated from the University at Albany with her Bachelors in Meteorology. She later attended the New School of Radio and Television where she completed the Broadcast Journalism program with top honors.

In her spare time, Kate loves to spend time with her friends and family. She and her fiancé rescued a Shih Tzu named "Franzen" who they love to pieces. Kate is also an avid volleyball player and loves to explore all New York has to offer.
