How did you become a TV weather forecaster?
I’ve always had an interest in the weather, but it was a bit like wanting to be an astronaut, it didn’t seem like a real job. Then the Met Office was looking for scientists who could communicate, and that’s the bit I really enjoy.
What’s your favourite weather?
I can’t abide it when it’s high pressure and the weather stays the same. For forecasters, that’s so boring. We want some decent low pressure, storms or snow – everyone goes completely crackers about snow.
Most important part of a forecaster’s job?
Making it into a kind of story that you can remember. It’s not just a collection of facts, it’s how you spin that data into the most important tale of the day.
