I'm an Emmy Award Winning meteorologist at Fox 61 in Hartford. For the latest forecast updates (and fun stuff too, like food and family pics), please follow me on Facebook, twitter and instagram. I look forward to interacting with you there!

Joe Fury, the head morning meteorologist (and a good friend)called in sick today. So this was my day.

2:00 AM Wake Up, shower, makeup, feed the cats
3:10 AM Out the Door
3:30 AM Arrive at FOX61, forecast, make graphics
4:30 AM On-air through 9: 30 AM EVERY 6 MINUTES!

You start to feel like a broken record after a while. But it's great to get out of work so early in the day. It's 10 AM and I don't have much left to do!

how often does the forcast change during those reports every 6 minutes?

It's not my normal schedule, just when I fill in for Joe. But it's his normal schedule!

No the forecast barely changes every 6 minutes. But the current conditions can change. I guess the idea is that people don't have time to sit down and watch the news for a long period of time. This way they can tune in quickly and get the forecast.
