Nicole Hartford joined the Storm Search 7 team as the Daybreak meteorologist in June of 2015.
Growing up in north Georgia, Nicole got a little taste of everything that weather can throw at you from tornadoes and flooding to hurricanes and blizzards. Georgia's rapidly changing weather sparked Nicole's interest in meteorology at a young age, and she spent many hours in front of the TV watching "Storm Stories" with her sister.
Nicole traveled down to the sunshine state to attend the University of Miami, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology and math with a minor in broadcast journalism.
After graduation, Nicole traded in hurricanes for snowstorms to kick off her television career in Grand Junction, Colorado. There, she had the opportunity to also explore news anchoring, reporting, and producing while working as the weekend then later the weekday meteorologist.
When she's not forecasting your weather, Nicole enjoys fishing, skiing, and watching sports as well as spending time with family and friends. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital holds a special place in her heart, and Nicole takes the opportunity to volunteer in the community whenever she can.
