Monica joined WEAU 13 News in July 2013 to bring you the weather each day bright and early on Sunrise!
Although new to Wisconsin, Monica is well acquainted with the Midwest. She comes to WEAU 13 from Notre Dame country having spent two and a half years in South Bend, Indiana where she was the weekend meteorologist for ABC 57. Prior to her time in the Hoosier State, she spent two years at NBC 40 in Atlantic City, NJ forecasting tropical storms and enjoying the Jersey Shore. Monica’s first job out of college in Alpena, Michigan featured a lot of lake effect snow and prepared her for Wisconsin’s cold and snowy winters!
Monica graduated from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology and minors in Math and Radio/Television Communications. She is an Ohio native and sorry Badger fans, she will always be a Buckeye (her younger brother was in the marching band at Ohio State)!
Outside of the SkyWarn13 Weather Lab, Monica enjoys reading, baking cupcakes and riding roller coasters.
Feel free to connect with her on Facebook and Twitter or email Monica.Ott@weau.com
