Megan McClellan joined the FOX23 Severe Weather Team in April 2016 from KTEN in Denison, TX where she focused on the forecast for Southern Oklahoma and North Texas.
Since joining the FOX23 Severe Weather Team, Megan has partnered with several local organizations including the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance and the American Parkinson Disease Association. She continues to expand our coverage of the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and has brought our viewers live scenes from Texas as Hurricane Harvey made landfall. While she was covering Hurricane Harvey, she reported on the damage and record-setting rainfall in (and around) Houston. During May and June of 2019, she covered the abnormally high rainfall that caused record flooding in Eastern Oklahoma with several creeks/rivers setting new crest records.
Megan considers herself a "Texas Girl, Born & Raised" but is familiar with Oklahoma weather. She attended the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!) getting a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology with minors in Math and General Business.
While at OU, Megan worked for the Oklahoma Mesonet, held officers positions in many student organizations, was a member of the Pride of Oklahoma Color Guard, and did weather for the on-campus newscast OU Nightly. She also presented research on how color tables and graphics affect decision making during severe weather at a national conference for meteorologists. Outside of her school classes, she gained valuable forecasting and broadcast experience during her time at OU Nightly and as an intern at the CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Megan is an amateur radio license holder for fun but also practices emergency preparedness exercises with other license holders. She is also a member of the American Meteorologist Society (including secretary of the local Route 66 Chapter) and a member of the National Weather Association.
Megan is a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
In her free time, Megan enjoys spending time with her friends and family, watching movies, and shooting at the gun range.
