AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist at WPTZ-TV in Burlington, VT and Plattsburgh, NY

After forecasting some of the most extreme weather in the United States, Weekday Morning Meteorologist Hayley LaPoint is excited to be back home in the northeast. Hayley grew up in Topsfield, Massachusetts and went to college in the Green Mountains of Vermont at Lyndon State College. While attending Lyndon State College, Hayley earned a Bachelor's degree in Meteorology and an Associate's degree in TV News.

Previously, Hayley settled in Fargo, ND at KVLY-TV & KXJB-TV. While in Fargo, Hayley received the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society -- the first TV meteorologist to receive this seal in the Fargo television market. The CBM seal, as it's known, is a newer, more rigorous certification. This is a distinct certification that she carries with her to NewsChannel 5 and 31.

Hayley has been interested in the weather since she was a young child. She often would spend hours in front of the family camcorder with a large map pointing out the next big nor’easter bearing down on the northeast!

When she’s not forecasting, Hayley enjoys spending time with her family and husband (who’s a meteorologist, too), walking her Westie named Doppler, and exploring the outdoors.
