Crystal Ploehn is the weekend meteorologist on KBTX.
Growing up in Plano, Texas, the weather was always changing. From snow to 100+ degree temperatures, you never knew what to expect. Crystal’s passion for weather started in the second grade after a severe weather event. After observing the television meteorologists calmly explain the stormy situation, Crystal knew that she wanted to become a broadcast meteorologist.
In college, Crystal interned at several news stations, including CBS11 in Ft. Worth, CW33 in Dallas, and here at KBTX. Being in the studio made her passion for weather and drive to achieve her goal grow even more.
She graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Meteorology in May 2012 and joined the Pinpoint Forecast Team a month later in June 2012.
Crystal is very excited to start her career at KBTX. This is a dream come true for her, and she hopes to share her passion for weather with the entire Brazos Valley!
