At age nine, Matt became interested in weather when a severe snowstorm dropped over a foot of snow in western Connecticut in late December 2000. Since then, he has been keeping track of all types of weather intently and enrolled in the B.S. Meteorology program in the Fall of 2009. He is majoring in both theoretical and operational meteorology and will be graduating this spring. Matt has had previous forecasting experience at Patch.com in Danbury in 2010 and 2011.
