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.

The latest from Cody Matz

700 feet separates a dusting and a foot of snow in southeast Minnesota

Widespread snow decorated parts of far southeast Minnesota and much of Wisconsin on Tuesday night and early Wednesday, leading to a foot of fresh snow in some cases. But not all spots were created equal. Elevation ended up playing a huge factor in just how much stuck.

Warmest winter on record for Twin Cities, much of Minnesota

Our winter months are now in the rearview mirror, which means the coldest air of the year should be behind us. But it wasn't all that cold as many of us longtime Minnesotans know. We finished with an average temperature of nearly 30 degrees, making it the warmest winter months on record in the Twin Cities.

Minnesota weather: The heat is coming back, but is far from locked in

After a pleasant, although smoky, couple of days, temperatures will quickly soar starting this weekend and potentially extending through much of next week. But this is unlike many of our heat waves here in Minnesota as we may enter a rarely seen setup.

Wildfires: Simultaneously our friend and foe

Wildfires are both naturally occurring and beneficial — and, in many cases, necessary evolution of forests and grasslands alike. But it's far more complex than that with humans directly affecting our landscape in both good and not-so-good ways.
