Falicia Woody joined Storm Team 27 in September 2020. She comes to the Valley from Waco, Texas where she spent over 1.5 years forecasting for the ever-changing weather of Central Texas at KXXV-TV. Previously, she was at our Nexstar sister station WTRF-TV in Wheeling, WV for two years as a meteorologist and reporter. She is originally from Atlanta, GA but is currently in her 8th state she has ever lived in.
Falicia graduated in May 2016 with her Bachelor’s Degree in Atmospheric Sciences and her Associate’s Degree in Electronic Journalism Arts from Lyndon State College (now Northern Vermont University-Lyndon) in Vermont. While at Lyndon State, she worked for the Vermont Center for Community Journalism (VCCJ-News 7), a student-run news station broadcasting to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. She was also a Lead Weather Forecaster for the Vermont Department of Transportation. Falicia completed two summer internships at WSB-TV in Atlanta, GA and KOB-TV in Albuquerque, NM.
Falicia was first bitten by the weather bug when she experienced a tornado warning in her area during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Ever since then, her favorite weather phenomenon is hurricanes and even inspired her to write her senior thesis research on hurricane flooding risk communication.
In her free time, Falicia enjoys watching football, exploring local restaurants, traveling, working out, and taking nature pictures.
