Heidi Moore has had a passion for weather ever since she can remember. She grew up in southeastern Massachusetts where she was lucky enough to experience all different types of weather. From severe storms to crippling blizzards, Heidi was always watching the
next event move into New England.
She decided she wanted to study and predict weather for a living, so she attended award-winning Lyndon State College (now Northern Vermont University) in Lyndonville, VT; a school known for having one of the best broadcasting programs in the country. She graduated in 2011 with a B.S in Atmospheric Sciences with a broadcasting concentration.
Heidi is no stranger to Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. She got her broadcasting start in Oak Hill, West Virginia where she began as a weekend meteorologist/reporter in June of 2012. In February of 2013 she was promoted to mornings and by October 2014 she was leading the weather department as Chief Meteorologist. After spending two and a half years in the state, she decided this is where she wanted to have a permanent home. When an opportunity came up at 59News, Heidi had no second thoughts about taking it. She worked for four years on various shifts for 59 news as well as WOWK-TV, WTRF-TV and WBOY-TV before she was offered the title of Chief Meteorologist for WVNS in January of 2019. You can catch her Monday-Friday at 5, 6, 10 and 11 PM.
In her spare time she enjoys playing poker, blackjack or any other card game. She also enjoys binge-watching shows on Netflix, singing at the top of her lungs or being curled up with a good book. She is a big New England Patriot and Boston Red Sox fan, and you will always hear her cheering for the Mountaineers come football season! On her days off she enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband as well as her Boxer Sammy. She is so glad she has been able to make southern West Virginia her home over the last several years.

Let’s Goooooo Mountaineers!
