Ariella Scalese


Ariella Scalese joined WSAV Storm Team 3 in July 2016. Her forecasts can be seen Saturday and Sunday mornings on Coastal Sunrise Weekend and WSAV News 3 Today.

Ariella graduated from Lehigh University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Earth and Environmental Science and minored in Mass Communication. She is working towards earning a certificate in Broadcast Meteorology through Mississippi State University.

Ariella’s broadcasting career began in Laredo, Texas where she was the weekday weather anchor for KGNS News Today and KGNS News at Noon.  While she was there, she also hosted a weekly pet adoption segment in partnership with the Laredo Animal Protective Society. She plans on hosting a Pet of the Week segment on Sunday morning’s right here on News 3.

Ariella enjoys being involved in her community. She represented her previous station in Dancing with the Stars Laredo style, where she danced to raise money for the local animal shelter.  Ariella is a volunteer for One Love Animal Rescue, right here in Savannah. She finds joy in fostering the animals before they go onto their forever home.

Ariella also enjoys all types of volunteering. She looks forward to the school year, when she can visit local classrooms and talk to students about weather. Ariella also volunteers for Performance Initiative and Faith Equestrian. Please feel free to contact Ariella about upcoming events in the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire

Ariella grew up outside of Philadelphia and still cheers for her home teams (especially the Flyers). You will see her around town shopping at health food stores, running at the park, walking dogs or catching some sun at beach. 

You can connect with Ariella via Facebook, Twitter and E-mail.
