Heather Waldman is an AMS Certified meteorologist at WGRZ in Buffalo, NY.
Heather moved to the Buffalo area in January 2017 after spending three years broadcasting the national forecast with The AccuWeather Network in State College, PA. Heather is a proud graduate of Penn State University with bachelor's degrees in meteorology and telecommunications.
Heather earned her CBM from the American Meteorological Society in 2014 and then her Broadcaster Seal of Approval from the National Weather Association in 2015. She is a full-time member of both organizations. In 2018, Heather won an Edward R. Murrow Award in Innovation for her work on a story that relived Buffalo's infamous "Blizzard of '77".
A self-declared "weather geek", Heather also produces a weekly weather segment for WGRZ's social media pages called "Heather's Weather Whys" where she answers viewer questions about all things weather every Wednesday evening.
Heather is a lover of all of Western New York's varying seasons and she's often outside enjoying whatever the weather brings by running, hiking, skiing and rock climbing. When conditions are a little too intense, she enjoys reading a good book or brewing a cup of tea and snuggling up with her cat, Albus. She's also a passionate college football fan and loves to cheer on her Nittany Lions.
