Matt Scott joined FoxCT in 2013 and brings over 20 years of broadcasting experience to the Fox Connecticut weather team.

Originally from New York City, Matt attended the University of Maryland and Mississippi State University. He has spent the last 11 years working as a meteorologist in Connecticut, most recently at News 12. In addition he has worked in West Virginia, Mississippi, Charlotte and Boston. His work has been nominated for Emmy Awards many times.

When he’s not on air, he’s online. Matt has won awards in the New Haven Advocate, the Hartford Advocate and New Haven Living magazine for his social media influence, on twitter (@themattcast and @tvmattscott), Facebook (facebook.com/themattcast) and Instagram (tvwxman).

But his two biggest accomplishments are at home, his two children. When he has a little spare time and is not sleeping, Matt loves to cook, play golf, play poker and read. He would probably be a better chef, a stronger golfer, a smarter poker player and a more accomplished reader if he could pry himself away from Facebook once in a while.

    Cloudy night leads to a stormy Saturday

    So much for Winter…for now! We hit 70 at Bradley today, more reminiscent of Mid May weather than late February. Clouds and low fog roll in overnight, and by tomorrow, an incoming storm brings clouds, scattered showers, and more steady rain late into the evening. I’m not ruling out the opportunity for thunderstorms either! Highs on Saturday reach the lower-mid 60s, but behind the front, we’ll only top out in the mid 40s, underneath sunshine for your Sunday. Mild weather […]

    Spring weather continues Friday, possible thunderstorms Saturday

    Our stretch of spring-like weather continues today, with temperatures into the 60s and a decent amount of sunshine! It may be a little cooler along the shoreline with highs in the 50s, but it still looks like a great day out there. There may be a scattered shower around at times, but no major issues are expected today. The chance for scattered showers continues through Saturday, with temperatures staying on the mild side. Highs will be in the 50s. There […]

    There’s a potential for record breaking temperatures on Thursday

    A big warm up is on the way for the next few days, with the potential for record breaking heat on Thursday. Some fog Thursday morning but once that burns off, we’ll warm up quickly, getting to near 60 by the end of the day. Best chance for records falling? At the shore, where Bridgeport’s record stands at 60. The clouds are back Friday, and we’re awaiting a system out west that will bring us a little rain Friday night, […]

    Night showers with temps in the 40s lead to a clear and milder Wednesday

    The clouds are now in place, and a little rain is on the approach overnight tonight. Temps stay mild tonight, in the upper 30s, so it’s just rain and nothing else. Rain exits early Wednesday morning, and as the skies clear, the temps take off, up to the mid 50s Wednesday, and the low 60s Thursday – which may be good enough for a record breaker in the high temp department. A few more chances for rain arrive by the […]

    Cold Monday to start week; with chance of snow Tuesday

    A relatively quiet start to the forecast this week, with some clouds tonight keeping temperatures mild in the upper 20s. There are two storms we’re watching this week – the first one on Monday is ‘mostly’ a miss. We say ‘mostly’ because the storm is just enough offshore to not mess with us. However, there’s a chance SE Connecticut may get a few snowflakes – not enough for much trouble. There’s a better chance for snow Tuesday, with the problem […]

    Rain showers and warmth on Thursday, then the cold returns for the weekend

    Clouds are quickly returning to the forecast, which for now, will keep temperatures on the mild side overnight. We’ll start Thursday with a few rain showers, and for the rest of the day, some off and on activity is expected, mainly down towards the Southern side of the state. Temps are mild, getting into the 40s across the state, with many of you seeing 50+ readings. But…..that’s it for the heat. Cooler temps and quieter weather take over for the […]

    Icy conditions cause problems for drivers around state

    HARTFORD — Icy road conditions are causing problems for drivers in the state. Route 8 Southbound and Northbound was closed between Exits 27 and 26 in Naugatuck for a time because of tractor-trailer accident. The state DOT said the truck spilled part of its load. Icy conditions are being reported as far south as Hamden and North Branford. Check the latest forecast here. Wind gusts may exceed 50 mph, leading to downed power lines. Snow and sleet is confined to the Northwest hills, where […]

    A dry, pleasant Christmas Day ahead

    No need to “careless whisper” about it, an interesting pattern is here. “One more try” for mild temps as we head into Monday. We start with sun, but clouds quickly move in and slow the warmup. This is an issue as we have rain late, and if inland temps stay close to 32, we may get a little freezing rain, so have “faith” that the temps will warm up. Temps still rise overnight into the 40s, as the rain falls, […]

    Foxwoods offers unprecedented view into Beatlemania with winter exhibit

    MASHANTUCKET — This is the story of four young lads who put a band together. Since the early ’60s, the Beatles have been a cornerstone of music history. Remember when the Beatles invaded? Mark Gould, with Sound Waves Magazine, an entertainment magazine that covers southeastern Connecticut and parts of Rhode Island, says he does. And he’s awed by Foxwoods Resort Casino’s tribute to the band. “This is so well done, and it’s so well realistic. They played with Vox amplifiers […]
