Meteorologist Dina Freedman brings nearly 20 years of forecasting experience to the FOX 13 weather team. Dina came to Salt Lake City in 2005 after spending a few years forecasting tornadoes and lake effect snow in Springfield, Missouri and Traverse City, Michigan. Dina has worked for all four stations in the Salt Lake television market and been with FOX 13 as a fill-in meteorologist since 2016.
Some of her most memorable events in the weather world include being on the air for more than 12 hours for the May 4, 2003 tornado outbreak in Southwest Missouri. The 7 feet of snow over a 4-day period in Northern Michigan was also a highlight.
Dina earned the prestigious AMS seal and the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal of approval from the American Meteorological Society in the early 2000s. She holds a B.S. in Meteorology from Lyndon State College (Northern Vermont University). She returned to graduate school at the University of Utah to earn a Masters of Science and Technology in Environmental Science and a Masters of Science of Secondary Science Teaching in Earth Sciences.
Although Dina is a 7th-grade science teacher she still finds time to forecast the weather and educate viewers for the Beehive state. She is originally from the small state of New Hampshire where big snow storms inspired her passion for weather. When not filling in at Fox13 Dina enjoys skiing, hiking, hot yoga and traveling the world.
