Chris Stiles

Christopher Stiles is a senior meteorology major at Western Connecticut State University. His interest in weather started around the age of 5, when his parents would wake him up during the night to watch the bright lightning from thunderstorms in the low lying areas of Ft. Myers, Florida. His passion began to grow through the years as he watched The Weather Channel Endlessly, or was told by his grade school teachers that it was time to pick a different research paper topic, weather presentations 3 separate times was enough! Chris continues his love for weather by taking part in leadership roles for the meteorology club at WestConn. One of which is leading the BRIDGE program, where bright middle school level students get taught the basics of weather and how to apply it in the real world, which can't be done without the help of his wonderful meteorology peers! Chris has hopes of one day landing a job as a broadcast meteorologist or behind the scenes forecaster, to apply his knowledge and passion!
