Violet Scibior is the StormTracker 2 Weekend Meteorologist for the NEWSChannel 2 Weekend Today and NEWSChannel 2 Weekend at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

She joined the StormTracker 2 team in July 2019, after graduating from SUNY College at Brockport in 2019 with a Bachelor's degree in Meteorology and a minor in Broadcasting. In 2018, she previously worked as a meteorology intern at Spectrum Bay News 9 in Tampa, Fla. Violet also worked as a meteorology intern at WKTV News Channel 2 in 2014.

Violet loves meteorology and has a passion for it. Her favorite type of weather is severe thunderstorms, and she is dedicated to forecasting and tracking them. Her specialty is in microscale meteorology and small-scale interactions. She pays close attention to detail and strives for perfection.

Violet was a competitive figure skater. She went to National Showcase USFS for her showcase routine in 2014. She qualified for nationals by winning first place in her division and again in the final championship round at the Mohawk Valley Classic Meyda Tiffany Showcase Competition.

Violet also enjoys scuba diving across the globe, and has her PADI Open Water Diver certification. Her hobbies include traveling around the world, hiking, running and arts.

Violet spends a lot of time with her cat Barry, a blue mitted Ragdoll, whom she adores.
