Nick's favorites? Color is aqua blue, animal is the humpback whale, and food is fruit salad, home-made pesto and sun dried tomato pizza, chocolate chip ice cream, a garden tomato; Well, he's half Italian, and he can't pick just one food of course. He loves hot air balloons, roller coasters, and the beach. What's his take on global warming? You'll have to ask him yourself. There's not enough space here to talk about it.

Nick says: "I'm ecstatic to be back on-air locally serving the people of Western Massachusetts with my weather forecasting ability and I look forward to reconnecting with them."
