Christine Rapp joined the FOX31 and Colorado’s Own Channel 2 team as a Pinpoint Weather meteorologist and reporter in November 2017. She is thrilled to be back in the Centennial State!

Christine grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois and earned her degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Missouri. While in school, she worked at Columbia’s NBC-affiliate, KOMU-TV, as a weekend forecaster.

After graduating, Christine worked as a Morning Meteorologist at KKTV in Colorado Springs, Colorado. From the Black Forest Wildfire, snowstorms, flash flooding in Manitou Springs, to tornadoes on the Eastern Plains, Christine covered it all during her two and a half years in the Springs.

From there, she worked as a Digital Meteorologist at WSOC-TV in Charlotte, North Carolina. But after two years of covering hurricanes, she was ready to come back to Colorado!

Christine is a member of the National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society. She is also a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist with the AMS.

Outside of work, Christine enjoys skiing and hiking, storm chasing, and following her favorite Chicago sports teams. Christine and her husband also have a Miniature Schnauzer, Thunder, who loves exploring different dog parks and trails around the area.
