Adrienne Green

Adrienne Veilleux began her career as a TV broadcaster for AccuWeather.com in August 2010.

Adrienne grew up in a small town called Greencastle, Pa. She has enjoyed weather ever since she was a little girl. In 2010, she received a B.S. in Meteorology from Millersville University.

During college, Adrienne was an active part of the Millersville University Weather Center, where she put together forecasts for the website and created a weekly streaming video. She also interned at NBC 25 (WHAG) in Hagerstown, Md., alongside meteorologist Chad Merrill. Adrienne also competed in the Wx Challenge, where in the 2009-2010 season, she did so well that she was asked to compete in their yearly tournament. Adrienne is a current member of The American Meteorological Society.

First CD/DVD you ever bought?
First CD was Spice Girls "SPICE"... I think I was in 5th grade.
I think my first DVD was "Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy"
What made you choose weather/meteorology/broadcasting as a career?
I've loved weather ever since I was a kid. I started college as a science education major but realized quickly that teaching wasn't for me. I absolutely loved my meteorology classes, so I decided to change majors, and here I am today!
Favorite sports team? Music? Movie genre? TV Show?
All New England teams - Red Sox & Patriots
I love rock music - '80s hair metal and '90s grunge are my favorites.
Comedies - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE "The Office"... I own every season on DVD. My dad was actually a paper salesman growing up, and living in Pennsylvania, it's obvious why it's near and dear to my heart...
Right or left handed?
-Right handed
Last movie you watched/book you read?
I just watched "Beauty & The Beast" a couple nights ago, which is my favorite Disney movie!
I read all the time, but I actually just finished a book that I thought was absolutely hilarious called "All My Friends Are Dead" by Avery Monsen and Jory John
Any superstitions you believe/practice?
Michael Scott, from "The Office," says it best... "I'm not superstitious... I'm just a little stitious. "
Favorite/most addictive form of social media?
I love facebook. I'm on it all the time. Check out my fan page at http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Adrienne-Veilleux/142779045758959
Your current desktop picture?
I switch my desktop background a lot. Right now it's my baby girl, Lola. She's a 40lb red Siberian Husky. I love her to pieces!
Favorite Season?
Springtime rocks! The combination of severe weather and comfortable temperatures make it the perfect time of year... Oh, and my birthday is during meteorological spring!
PC or MAC?
PC for now, but I'm in the process of changing over...
One meal for the rest of your life – what would it be?
Without a doubt, I would eat spaghettios with meatballs everyday for the rest of my life. I eat them multiple times a week now... But, it has to be the normal-size can, not the jumbo one. The consistency is completely different...
Hobbies / Special Interests / If Golf, what's your Handicap?
I'm very crafty. I love cross-stitch and scrapbooking. Baking is also something I love to do in my spare time, and to counter all the junk that I end up eating from all the baking I do, I like to run.
Favorite meteorology course?
I loved my "Advanced Forecasting Practicum" course. My prof would give us multiple cities to forecast different aspects of the weather (ie: high temp, low temp, temp at a specific time, PoPs, dew point, wind direction/speed, chance of thunderstorm, etc.). I absolutely love forecasting, so it was no surprise why I loved the course so much.
