Cody Matz


Cody Matz was born and raised a Minnesotan. Originally from Eagan, he spent his early years becoming a Minnesota sports fan and relishing in all things snow, including the famous Halloween Blizzard. 

He moved away as a teenager to Arizona where he spent high school and the first couple years of college at Arizona State before transferring to Mississippi State to get his broadcast meteorology degree. 

Cody’s first job was in Sioux Falls, South Dakota as the morning meteorologist, but then became the chief meteorologist for over 4 years. 

In June of 2013 though, he finally got a chance to move back to his hometown and join the team at FOX 9 as the weekend morning meteorologist. Now you can see him most weekdays at 11 a.m., Saturday mornings, and anytime anyone on the weather team needs a day off. 

Cody loves all things food, is an avid Crossfitter, and hangs out with his golden retriever named Copper.

Friday night rains either 'feast or famine'

In true summertime fashion, some areas of Minnesota & Wisconsin received some much needed moisture Friday night and early Saturday, but many others did not.


All-time record heat observed in the Pacific Northwest, Canada

Seattle, Portland and more than a dozen other cities in the Pacific Northwest set all-time record high AND low temperatures over the last couple of days. Not to be outdone by our neighbors to the north where Lytton, British Columbia, located roughly 100 miles north of the Washington border, set and all-time Canadian record high of 118 degrees Fahrenheit. That's right, that's the warmest temperature ever observed in Canada, since reliable records began back in the 1800s.
