Meteorologist Matt Gray brings you the forecast each weekend on 4 News Now, along with stories about how weather and climate impact all of us in the Inland Northwest.

Matt began his career just down I-90 in Missoula, Montana shortly after graduating with a B.S. in Meteorology from Florida State University. Matt returned home to Florida in 2017 and immediately ended up covering the state’s first major hurricane landfall in over a decade. Now after covering a few active hurricane seasons, Matt is excited to forecast for the regular four seasons instead here in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

When Matt isn’t talking weather, he’s spending time hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter, watching sports, and finding good local food (and local beer) to try.
