Education and early life

Cecily and her younger brother Adam were raised in Newtown by their parents, about whom Cecily hasn’t shared a lot because she respects their privacy; she’s still revealed that her mother was born on 21 March 1932, and that her father wasn’t certain that she’d be able to succeed as a meteorologist.

Cecily grew up dancing ballet, and acting with her elementary school’s drama club, but became interested in weather when she was around six years old, as she was fascinated by storms and thunder. She was amongst the best students while attending a local high school, and by the time she turned 16, Cecily knew that she wanted to become a meteorologist.

She matriculated in 1987, and then enrolled at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, from which she graduated magna cum laude, with a double Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in politics and journalism in 1991; Cecily then went on to receive her TV seal number 1099 from the American Meteorological Society.

Cecily’s career

Cecily launched her career straight out of college, as she moved to Roanoke, Virginia and began working at WDBJ as their general assignment reporter and weekend weather anchor.

After around two years at WDBJ, Cecily moved to Las Vegas, Nevada as she was offered work as a news and weather anchor on KTNV’s show “Good Morning Las Vegas”. She started out as their general reporter and weekend weathercaster, and was eventually promoted to weekday morning weathercaster.

She joined WPVI in 1995, and when in 2003 the network’s weathercaster, Dave Roberts chose to retire, Cecily became the new weeknights weathercaster. American news presenter Lisa Thomas-Laury then took a medical leave, and Cecily began co-hosting multiple local TV specials too, including “The Flower Show”, “Philly on Wheels” and “The 4th of July Parade”.

Since 2009, Cecily’s been hosting the weathercasts at 5 and 6pm, and has also been working on the an 11pm meteorology newscast.
