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.

  • Windy and cold overnight; sunny and chilly again on Thursday

    Windy and cold, that was the word today. Temperatures took a tumble due to an Arctic front that has made its way through. Tonight it won’t get any better. Lows will drop into the teens, with that wind continuing to make it feel even colder than it says on the thermometer. Our record low temperature is 9 degrees, and we’ll be pretty close to that at Bradley Airport. After another chilly day on Thursday, temperatures rebound for Friday and the weekend. […]

  • Cold, windy night with temps in 20s; sunny but cold Wednesday

    Spring started on a Spring-like note, with temps in the lower 50s across much of the region – the first day we’ve been above normal…since March 9!

  • Windy night with temps in the teens; tracking potential snow Saturday

    Tonight we’ll have lows in the teens and 20s with partly cloudy skies, and then there’s another decent day (by January standards) on tap for Friday. Highs will be near 40 degrees, which is still well below our average of 48 for mid-March. Snow for Saturday? Doesn’t look like a blockbuster storm, but there could be a few inches during the mid-day and afternoon hours. We’ll keep a close eye on it. Be sure to download the FOX61 Weather app […]

    ight=”360″] The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow which is in effect from 11 a.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday for the entire state, except for Litchfield county.

  • 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 […]
