Jason Pelletier

Hi I'm Jason and I currently reside in Harwinton over in the Northwest Hills of Litchfield County. I have always been obsessed with weather ever since I was young and as is common of many of the other "weather geeks" here, spent many mornings watching the news solely for the weather reports then switched over to the Weather Channel and watch for hours on end. I am also an official Skywarn spotter for the National Weather Service.

When not preoccupied with the weather I play/coach baseball during the summer and you can find me on the ski slopes all winter long. I also run a baseball blog called Washed Up Righty

You can also connect with me on Twitter @JayPelletier or on Facebook
