Meteorologist Angelica Campos joined the WJW Fox 8 team in June, 2010.

Before arriving in Cleveland, Angelica worked at Accuweather where she gained experience covering weather across the nation, and throughout much of the globe. She provided forecasts on TV and radio for numerous AccuWeather clients.

She also appeared on national networks such as Fox Business, Fox News, Bloomberg, and ABC World. Reporters from ABC News and CBS News have interviewed Angelica about winter storms, severe weather, and hurricanes. In addition, Angelica has done the weather in Spanish for TV stations in Puerto Rico, Mexico, and several Univision stations in California.

Campos holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geosciences and Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University, and a degree in Mass Communications from the University of West Georgia. She is also a member of the National Weather Association.

Angelica was born in the tropical city of San Jose, Costa Rica. Angelica and her family moved to the US in December of 1999. Since then, Angelica fell in love with weather and the ever changing conditions across the USA.

She considers Cleveland the perfect weather lab. A great place for any meteorologist, given the complex weather patterns, lake effect, and its unique seasons.

Angelica likes to stay active and loves to workout. She is an avid runner, and triathlete. She enjoys doing crossfit and competing in obstacle races. You can also find Angelica riding her motorcycle, hiking, mountain biking, or walking her little Maltese-Poodle, Charley, when the weather is nice.

In her spare time, she loves participating in community events and giving back. She is part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters. She has raised money for the American Diabetes Association, and the Ghost Rider Foundation helping Veterans recover from Post Traumatic Stress.

Angelica was named one of Cleveland's most interesting people on 2011. Kaleidoscope Magazine has also inducted her into its Forty/Forty Club, which recognizes Clevelanders under the age of 40 who are making a difference. In March 2012, Campos was featured on the cover of the Latinos Magazine NE Ohio edition. The first local celebrity to grace the cover of the magazine.

    When is it Safe to Jump in the Lake?

    Warmer temperatures get most people excited to get outside and take advantage of the lake. However, warmer temperatures do not mean a warm lake. In fact, the lake temperatures as of late April are still chilly in the mid-40s. Water has a low heat capacity. What this means is that the water temperatures doesn’t change easily. Lakes and oceans help regulate temperatures around the world. Here in Northeast Ohio, the lake temperature affects our weather all year round. In the […]

  • Impact of No El Nino, No La Nina

    What will this 2012 winter bring? I can tell you it will not be a repeat of last year’s mild, dry conditions. La Niña has moved on and El Niño is not ready to move in yet. So, as we stay in a neutral pattern we will have more chances of longer episodes of colder air and unsettled conditions, making it more favorable for snow and leaning toward normal snow amounts for 2012. On average, Northeast Ohio can range from 40-90 inches […]
