Who Can Explain Cleveland’s Weather?
As the seasons start to change, the weather is about to become more unpredictable than it already is! Meteorology may sound easy, but the forces of mother nature can never truly be accurately depicted. From snowstorms, to tornadoes, a few minor earthquakes, rain, and sun, Cleveland’s own weather can’t be explained. Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling, from WKYC, joins us to share stories on some of Cleveland’s craziest weather.

Betsy Kling Bio

Betsy Kling has won Emmy awards as both a Chief Meteorologist and Anchor.

Born and raised right here in Northeast Ohio, Betsy’s hometown, Copley, is in Summit County just to the west of Akron. After graduating from Copley High School she went to Bowling Green State University where she earned her journalism degree and a minor in meteorology. She finished her remaining meteorology coursework through Mississippi State University. Betsy worked in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Jacksonville, Florida, before coming home in 2003. In 2008 she became Cleveland’s first female Chief Meteorologist.

Betsy is part of a small (but growing!) group of women in the country who have earned the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) accreditation from the American Meteorological Society, as well as the Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association (NWA). Betsy was named National Weather Association 2021 Broadcaster of the Year and is the only person to be named Member of the Year twice by the organization. In January, 2020, Betsy teamed up with Jay Crawford to debut What’s New, a newscast with a mix of personality and credibility like no other.

In 2018, 3News tapped Betsy to start a multi-year initiative to encourage and promote girls and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Calling it “Growing Curiosity: Girls In STEM”, the station quickly gained recognition for shining the spotlight on women in STEM careers and highlighting “STEMbassadors” — women and girls doing great things in STEM.
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
