Colonie Weather Online launched on January 8, 2005.

Webmaster Biography

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 member of the Eastern New York Weather Observers Network, AerisWeather Personal Weather Station Contributor, a weather watcher for WRGB CBS6 News and a trained SKYWARN spotter for the National Weather Service.

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.
