Cassie Heiter

Meteorologist

Cassie joined Storm Team 8 in July 2009.

Cassie grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and holds a degree in Meteorology from Western Kentucky University. Before coming to the Quad Cities, Cassie was a meteorologist at WNKY-TV in Bowling Green, Ky., and interned at WEHT-TV in Evansville, Ind., where she gained valuable experience in the area of forecasting from the station's meteorologists.

Cassie's interest in weather began when she was only seven years old after a big snowstorm left 16 inches of snow over her hometown. Since then, severe weather has fascinated Cassie - but her ideal weather is sunshine and 70 degrees.

When not forecasting, Cassie's hobbies include traveling, reading, and giving in to her guilty pleasure of reality television. She is proud to call the Quad Cities home.
