As a native of Region 8, meteorologist Sarah Tipton brings familiarity with the viewing area to her job on the Region 8 StormTEAM. The Missouri Bootheel native grew up in Caruthersville, and loves Region 8.
A horse enthusiast, Sarah grew up riding horses, and even did some barrel racing. Sarah also is married, has two cats, loves to hunt and fish, and, as you might expect from a southeast Missouri native, cheers on the St. Louis Cardinals.
Sarah is a 2003 graduate of Rhodes College in Memphis, and completed her Master of Science in Geosciences, with an emphasis in broadcast meteorology, from Mississippi State University in 2006.
She describes her weather philosophy by saying, "Weather fascinates me, but people come first. Helping someone plan their day or weekend, and doing it well, is the driving force behind my forecasts."
Sarah is now the morning meterologist, anchoring the Storm Center on Good Morning Region 8 and throughout the morning.
