Lindsay Riley joined the NBC 5 team in November of 2012 and can be seen every weekend morning from 6-10am on Saturday and 6-9am on Sunday.
Before coming to NBC 5, Lindsay worked at LEX 18 in Lexington, Kentucky and WIVB in Buffalo, New York. Forecasting in Lexington and Buffalo really opened her eyes to all the diverse weather that we have around the country, ranging from Lake Effect Snow and frigid temperatures to severe weather and flooding.
While in Buffalo, she won an Emmy Award while covering “The Wild Wind Storm” of January 2008. This also happened to be one of the more memorable days of her career so far. She is bringing her passion and excitement for weather to North Texas and is looking forward to forecasting all the different weather Texas is going to bring her way.
Lindsay has been a weather enthusiast since she was four-years-old and becoming a broadcast meteorologist has been her lifelong goal. Instead of watching “Barney” and “Mr. Roger’s” she would watch The Weather Channel for hours on end. This passion took her through her childhood and eventually earned her B.S. in Meteorology from The Pennsylvania State University and graduated with honors. She has also been a member of The American Meteorological Society for over six years.
While growing up in New Jersey the most memorable storms were the Blizzards of ’93 and ’96 as well as Tropical Storms Bertha and Floyd.
“There was no single weather event that turned me on to weather, instead it was just one of those passions I was born with," says Lindsay.
When Lindsay isn’t at work she is most likely enjoying the great outdoors. Hiking, biking, traveling and skiing are her favorite hobbies, and if you happen to run into her, she’ll most likely have her Yellow Lab, Brody by her side. When college football season arrives, Lindsay is glued to the television rooting on her Nittany Lions! She is also excited to root on the Dallas Cowboys and is hoping to get to a few home games.
