Autumn Robertson is an Atlanta, Georgia native who is excited to be apart of the WTSP weather team.
Autumn’s interest with weather started young. Her curiosity about severe weather, specifically tornadoes, began the day she got terrified during the “Twister” movie ride at Universal Studios at the age of four. Her fear turned into fascination, and it lead her to the University of Miami (Go Canes!) where she received a Bachelors of Science in Broadcast Journalism with a concentration in meteorology.
At ‘The U’, Autumn was involved with her school's award-winning television studio UMTV. She served as a meteorologist for Newsvision, the university's flagship weekly newscast, and worked as an executive producer for the station's digital newscast “Newsbreak”.
Autumn worked at CBS 4 Miami during her last days at the University of Miami before heading west. She became the morning and weekend meteorologist and reporter at the CBS affiliate in Medford, Oregon where she forecasted a range of weather for four different microclimates that included severe mountain snow, dangerous surf, major flooding, and extreme dry triple digit heat which lead to deadly wildfires.
She covered the record-breaking fire season of 2018, a year when dry, lightning-abundant thunderstorms sparked multiple wildfires throughout the region, which devastated the region’s local economy and created a major smoke public health crisis that lasted for weeks on end. She will never forget the days of staring up into the apocalyptic-like ash-filled skies.
She’s happy to be back in the warm, muggy south, ready to forecast the tropical weather that Florida is known for.
