Ashley Baylor Meteorologist
Baylor says “I’ve had an interest in weather since I was 9 years old. I moved to Charleston, South Carolina the year after Hurricane Hugo made landfall there. Even though I didn’t live through Hugo, the devastation was still visible a year later. In 1992, still living in Charleston, Hurricane Andrew slammed into southern Florida. I remember being glued to the TV, watching the coverage… I’ve been hooked ever since!”

Ashley Baylor Invasive Insects Are Continuing To Kill Our Connecticut Trees
Article by Ashley Baylor;
Ash trees and oak trees are becoming more and more scarce across the state of Connecticut all because of the invasive Emerald Ash Borer and Gypsy Moths.
So how do you know if you have a problem with the Emerald Ash Borer or Gypsy Moths?
Chris Martin, the Director of the CT DEEP Department of Forestry said, “If you have a tree that has no leaves on it and it’s an oak or ash, it’s likely dead from the Gypsy Moth or the Emerald Ash Borer.”
Since these insects are known to cross state lines through firewood, the Department of Forestry has strict regulations in place to keep out-of-state firewood from coming into Connecticut.

The Department of Forestry also has to watch out for other invasive insects and bugs that are inching closer to our state, like the Asian Longhorn Beetle, found just north of us in Worchester, Mass.
The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection also has its eyes on the Spotted Lanternfly, which has come as close as Pennsylvania. If it starts spreading into Connecticut, that could be devastating to hops, orchards, and grapevines which would have a major impact on the agricultural industry.
Ashley Baylor Strawberries Ready For Picking At Jones Family Farms
Article by Ashley Baylor;
It was a beautiful opening day of the strawberry season at Jones Family Farms.
Since we are coming off a rather soggy spring, Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Ashley Baylor wanted to see whether that excess water would affect the sweet crop.
The sun was shining at the farm in Shelton. This was the first day of its strawberry season, and the berries were ripe and ready for picking.
Mother Nature certainly helped out from the recent rainfall.
While the rain is welcome, the cold temperatures are not.
But with several varieties, you can actually pick strawberries all summer at Jones Family Farms.
