Matt Gray

Matt joined the NBC Montana weather team in July 2013 after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology from The Florida State University. This is his first professional position in the weather field and he is excited to begin his career at NBC Montana.

Matt became fascinated with weather while watching thunderstorms during the hot Florida afternoons. The 2004 hurricane season has serious impacts on the Sunshine State, including Matt's hometown of Ocala, FL. It was then that he began to consider meteorology as a career. During his time at FSU, Matt spent summers launching weather balloons in Oklahoma and interning at WHNT TV in Huntsville, Alabama where he decided to pursue a broadcasting career.

Matt is an avid sports fan and follows the New York Mets, New York Giants, and his alma mater's sports teams. He also enjoys outdoor pursuits such as backpacking and plans to spend more time outdoors now that he resides in a place as beautiful as western Montana. In his brief time in Montana, he has covered everything from blizzards to wildfires to severe thunderstorms.
