After three years of doing the morning weather at Hearst’s KCCI, meteorologist Riley O’Connor has moved up I-35 to the Twin Cities and CBS-owned WCCO.

He’s still on the morning shift and he arrives just in time for those Minnesota winters that, quite frankly, we don’t miss.

Obviously, the excitement is contagious.

“My family and I are excited to begin a new chapter and journey in life,” O’Connor said.

And he was welcomed to the station in typical Upper Midwest fashion, something we do miss.

Those extended goodbyes were unlike anything we’ve experienced before or since.
