Sawyer McElroy

Sawyer is one of the newest members of the First Alert Weather team for CBS 7 News, joining in June 2023.

She graduated from the Metropolitan State University of Denver in December 2021 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology and a minor in Mathematics. She is a member of both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.

Before coming to CBS 7, Sawyer was a meteorologist for KTTC in Rochester, Minnesota. She traded in 40-below wind chill temperatures for triple-digit temperatures in West Texas.

A Colorado native, she's excited to be closer to home and her family. Growing up in Colorado, she loved to go hunting and fishing with her Dad. She enjoys spending time with her family, including her niece, nephew, and five dogs. She loves going to the Disney Parks and Broadway shows with her Mom, even starring in a few high school productions herself.

She is looking forward to keeping the community well-informed throughout all types of weather. Living in Colorado and Minnesota, she's learned and has experience forecasting pretty much every type of weather which will come in handy here in West Texas.
