Colonie Weather Online launched on January 8, 2005.
The current conditions data on the home page is provided by a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2™ weather station, which records a variety of weather data, from the outside temperature to highest yearly rainfall rate. Software called WeatherLink® is then used to display the data on this site.
My name is Chris Fatato. I graduated from the University at Albany in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Meteorology. I developed a passion for weather at a very young age. Every meteorologist has one weather event that got them into the field and mine was the Blizzard of 1993.
I am a weather watcher for WRGB CBS6 News and a trained SKYWARN spotter for the National Weather Service in Albany (NY).
It is with great pleasure to pass along my love for the weather to the public via the internet as my other passion falls within web design.
