Matt Brickman puts on makeup and points at numbers on WCCO This Morning, Monday through Friday.

Growing up in New England, Matt actually prefers winter to summer so Minnesota is a great fit. Matt came to the Midwest to attend the University of Illinois and hasn’t left since. He still can’t figure out why people put ranch on everything.

When he isn’t forecasting the weather Matt is usually at home with his wife Kate, sons Henry and Otis, and pets Hot Sauce, Crash & Gus. When he can get out of the house, Matt loves going to movies, playing golf and eating more pizza than he should.
