More About Ginger Zee

Ginger Zee is the chief meteorologist at ABC News. You see her covering the nation’s weather headlines on Good Morning America and across all ABC News broadcasts and digital platforms. She also hosts an ABC News original digital series, Food Forecast, focused on climate and its impact on agriculture.   

Ginger has covered almost every major weather event and dozens of historic storms for the past fifteen years—from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy and Michael; from the Australian wildfires to the climate’s impact on Victoria Falls, Africa; and the aftermath of tornadoes all over the United States, most notably those in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma. She’s covered blizzards in Boston and record-breaking heat in Death Valley. She not only shares her passion for meteorology but, more importantly, presents the compassion and human side of these storms.     

Having storm-chased since college, Ginger has a genuine love for the atmosphere and a dedication to getting young people interested in science. She has written a STEM trilogy called Chasing Helicity for middle grades, which follows a stormchasing a young woman named Helicity across the U.S. learning about science and life.
