Young Weather Fan Makes Special Visit To WBZ Weather Center

BOSTON (CBS) – There was a special visitor to the WBZ Weather Center on Thursday. Noah Coon from Arlington, Virginia is a big weather fan and stopped by the studio thanks to Dream On 3.

Noah has cerebral palsy and was in Boston to visit the Red Sox. Because he's also a fan of meteorology, he came to visit the WBZ weather team.

Noah's mother says it was everything he could have hoped for. "He's been taking it all in. I said to him this morning, I said, 'This is a lot.' And he said, 'This is a once in a lifetime experience I don't want this to end,'" Kiersten Todt said.

"He said, 'I don't ever want to leave Boston.' I think if he had his way I think he would be here for many, many, days let alone weeks and months so he's tired but he is pushing through."

Noah says his most memorable storm is 'Snowmageddon' in 2010.

During his visit to Fenway, Noah met with the Red Sox, and broadcasters Dennis Eckersley, Dave O'Brien and Jerry Remy. He also got to sign the Green Monster.

Dream on 3 is a non-profit that helps create sports themed experience for kids living with life altering conditions.
