Christian BridgesMeteorologist

Connect With Christian Bridges

I joined the WGME team beginning in February 2022. I am originally from the Atlanta, GA area and I have had a passion for the weather since I was 8 years old. In fact, one of my childhood dreams was to live in Maine!

My love of meteorology brought me to Mississippi State University, where I graduated in December 2021 with my Bachelor’s degree in Professional and broadcast meteorology.

While at school, I interned at memphisweather.net, and the National Weather Service in Louisville, Kentucky.

I got my first meteorology job in 2021 at WCBI-TV in Columbus, MS, where I was the weekend and fill-in meteorologist from May 2021 to the beginning of 2022.

In my time there, I covered several tornado outbreaks, winter storms, and even Hurricane Ida from the gulf coast.

I came to Maine to live by the ocean and forecast and experience winter weather, and I could not be more excited to be here!

When I’m not forecasting or covering the weather, you’ll find me mountain biking, hiking, swimming, or at the beach. I’m also a huge foodie and I love to try all of the amazing restaurants that Portland has to offer.
