Chris Sowers
Chris Sowers joined Action News as the weekend morning meteorologist in May 2011. This is a return to 6abc for Chris, as he originally worked as a weather producer beginning in October, 2000. In 2005, Chris left Philadelphia to begin his on-air career as Chief Meteorologist for WNKY in Bowling Green, Kentucky. From there, Mr. Sowers made a stop in the "Windy City" of Chicago where he was the weekend meteorologist.

A Glassboro, NJ native, Chris graduated with a Meteorology degree from Kean University in Union, New Jersey. He also has his NWA Seal from the National Weather Association and numerous certificates for mesoscale circulation forecasting.

Chris enjoys weight lifting, running and spending time with his family and friends. He has a younger brother, as well as an identical twin brother, and yes, they played all the tricks on their teachers as kids, and are inseparable to this day. Chris also enjoys the thrill of competition. Growing up, he wrestled and played baseball for 15 years. He competes in several charity races each year, including stair climbs and kayak marathons, to help raise money for local charities.
