Chris has forecast and covered many of central North Carolina's biggest weather events, including the Snowstorm of 2000, The Ice Storm of 2002, and Hurricanes Fran, Florence & Floyd. He was on the air for over twelve hours during the tornado outbreak of April 2011, North Carolina's worst tornado disaster in history.
Chris' interest in the weather began as child growing up in Louisville, KY. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, and snowstorms fascinated him, and he knew by the 8th grade that he wanted to be a meteorologist. He graduated from St. Louis University with a BS Degree in Meteorology and holds the American Meteorological Society's Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation.
When he is not forecasting the weather, Chris enjoys visiting classrooms across the Heart Of Carolina. In his spare time, Chris enjoys the beach, reading, going to the movies, and especially spending time with his family. Chris lives in Raleigh with his wife, daughter and two faithful dogs, Madison & Abby.
