For Carson Metcalf, Central New York is home. A native of Fulton, he’s no stranger to the wide variety of forecasting challenges this area can provide and knows that using a broom to clean snow off of his car is more effective than a snow brush.
Carson was interested in weather by the time he was 3 years old. Over the years, he became known as “The Weatherman” in school, and was often asked what to expect by both students and teachers alike – especially his snow day predictions! Bringing things full circle, Carson recently was a substitute teacher at his high school, G. Ray Bodley in Fulton, and loves traveling to local schools to talk about weather and encourage the next generation of scientists.
Prior to joining Spectrum News 1 in March 2017, Carson graduated from SUNY Oswego with a bachelor’s degree in meteorology and a minor in mathematics. During his time there, he provided forecasts for WTOP, the student-run television station, and WNYO radio. Carson also had the opportunity to chase storms throughout the Midwest as a participant in the college’s Storm Forecasting and Observation Program. Since joining Spectrum News 1, he has provided forecasts for all of our stations in upstate New York as well as New York City and Los Angeles.
When he’s not forecasting your weather, you can find Carson watching the sunset on Lake Ontario, playing with the family’s mini goldendoodles, Zoey and Ruby, or enjoying the chicken parmesan at Canale’s.
