Lindsey Monroe joined the Severe Weather 13 Team in January 2016 as a meteorologist for Good Morning Memphis and Fox 13 Midday.
Prior to her move to Memphis, she spent four years forecasting the weather at WTHI-TV in Terre Haute, Indiana working as chief meteorologist on the morning show. Weather coverage in the Midwest included everything from blizzards to tornado outbreaks.
In 2014, she was honored with her first Emmy nomination for weather and was awarded the Indiana Broadcasters Association’s Spectrum Award for Best Weathercast. She also received recognition from the Associated Press for “Outstanding Weather Operation”.
A few summers ago, Lindsey had the opportunity to participate in an 18-day storm chasing field observation study in the Great Plains. Here, she came within a half mile of a tornado in central Nebraska and witnessed severe weather at its deadliest. She plans to use this hands-on forecasting experience to keep the Mid-South safe when severe weather strikes.
Lindsey is from Cambridge City, Indiana and is a graduate of Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology and Climatology with a minor in Telecommunications.
When not forecasting the weather, Lindsey enjoys participating in volunteer and community service efforts. She has been a proud supporter of the Lupus Foundation of America ever since she was diagnosed with lupus in 2004. She has also worked with the Children’s Miracle Network, which raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America.
