Carrie Olver

Gemini-nominated Carrie Olver has been a steadfast member of The Weather Network's on-air broadcasting team since 2004.

Carrie first burst onto the Canadian airwaves in 1988, logging over 5000 live television hours as a host on The Shopping Channel. She was then quickly recruited to work in the U.S., where she became homesick for her Canadian roots and returned to host The Discovery Network's internationally syndicated show "Spectacular Spas."

With 75 episodes under her belt and a Gemini nomination for her hosting and interviewing skills, Carrie decided it was time for a change and joined The Weather Network team. Covering everything from "Snowmageddon" to the "Dog Days of Summer", she has a keen interest in all things weather-related.

Carrie's passion for animals prompted her to get involved with ongoing fundraising efforts for The Humane Society. Her charitable efforts extend not only here at home but on the other side of the world as well. A passion near and dear to her heart is helping to draw awareness and raise money for the victims of the Japanese Tsunami and earthquake of 2011.

Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, she now calls Oakville, Ontario home. Carrie is a mother of two and is just waiting to adopt that next cute little furry face, always looking to expand her family for an animal in need.

Chris Mei

Is there anything more fun than weather? It's like sports: the situation is always changing, people are always either rooting for or against it, and (as long as our Earth keeps spinning) anything can happen.

Chris joined The Weather Network family back in 2006 after six years in radio, four years at another television station and, before that, four years in the entertainment world.

He came to performance by way of stage - first as an actor and then growing as a comedian and professional public speaker.

Chris's mother was a dance teacher and father, an engineer, who moved the family all over the world. Chris has been in sandstorms in Saudi Arabia, hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico, strange coastal anomalies in southern Spain and a tornado in Barrie in '85.

He graduated on the Dean's Honour List and with an Award for Academic Excellence from Mohawk College's Communications Program.

Since being at The Weather Network Chris has quickly achieved my CMOS accreditation, assisted in launching The Weather Network's Sirius Satellite Radio feed, filed active weather reports and news reports as well as assisted in producing specialty programming segments.

When not working weather angles, Chris is a huge fan of the arts and sports. He loves soccer (futbol) and before work, can be found at his favourite neighbourhood park running drills...then drilling soccer balls into the net.

Learning comedy from some amazing touring artists, Chris went on to attend two years at the Second City Comedy Improv School in Toronto, then formed a comedy troupe that he wrote for and played in for five years.

Chris tries to bring a bit of levity to his daily afternoon broadcasts (on and off the camera) and to his daily tweets. Weather can be funny and serious at the same time; think of the cruel joke Chinook winds are to Calgary; think of the fact that the Great Lakes are ice cold for most of the summer - then by winter they have heated up nicely, only to now work as a lake effect snow engine!

Chris St.Clair

Chris St. Clair has been a mainstay on The Weather Network since 1995 and was chosen as "Canada's Most Dependable Weatherman". After a start hosting mornings, Chris can now be seen on weekends. Viewers will also see Chris in the feature series "Weatherwise," which explores and explains all manner of weather phenomena, airing daily on The Weather Network. This program is also widely distributed to schools around the country as a teaching aid.

Before joining The Weather Network, Chris held various positions within the broadcast industry, including on-air, research and management. His first job was at CJCH Radio in Halifax in 1978, and from there he went on to work at broadcast outlets in Sarnia, Kingston and Montreal.

Chris is a licensed pilot who flies regularly and is type rated (trained) on several different aircraft. "Aviation is my hobby and favourite activity outside of my family," he says.

Chris also believes in green living: "I am an advocate for a healthier planet and the best way to be a greener citizen is to better understand our planet and how all of its parts are linked. Understanding the weather, the one thing that we all share everyday, is a good way to start. We are all naturally curious and if I can encourage someone to be just a little more interested in our Earth, then I feel I've done my job".

His first book Canada's Weather, from Firefly Books, is a Canadian best seller. The weather and climate of Canada is thoroughly detailed in this full colour, richly pictorial essay. Chris St. Clair lives in eastern Ontario with his wife and daughter.

Denise Andreacchi

Having spent most of her life on stage and screen Denise Andreacchi's favorite thing to do is TALK!! A recent graduate of Sheridan College's Broadcast Journalism program, Denise walked away from the two years with a media scholarship and an award for Best Host. Fascinated by Canadian weather, she couldn't be more excited to join the team here at The Weather Network.

"This country is so vast. From coast to coast we see the beauty and mystery in every valley, mountain peak, meadow and shoreline. Everyday I learn something new. That's what I love most about my job."

When Denise isn't working, she spends her time cooking, walking her dog and practicing Yoga. Shoe shopping squeezes it's way in there too! If you have a question about the weather, cooking or fashion you can always tweet her.

Emily Vukovic

With an avid love of the outdoors, it's no surprise that Emily Vukovic came to work at The Weather Network. She's lived in many parts of Canada and really appreciates the diverse weather every province has to offer. Emily received an Honours degree in Sociology from the University of Western Ontario before realizing her love for broadcasting. She then completed the Broadcast Journalism program at Seneca College and began her career on air at an 80's pop radio station in Kingston, Ontario.

Emily soon made the leap to television, moving over to CKWS for her start in weather broadcasting. After a few years, the opportunity came up to join The Weather Network. Emily has been part of the dynamic team since 2006.

When she's not busy bringing you your most up-to-date forecasts as you start your morning, Emily can be found gardening, working out, traveling or spending time with her husband and beloved golden doodle "Roxy".

Summer is Emily's favourite season, so if you don't see her on TV, you'll most likely find her on the beach. And in the winter, she'll be on a plane going somewhere hot!

Farah Dhalla

Farah's favorite time of the year is Autumn. She says, "The weather is perfect. Not too cold and not too warm." She adds the changing colour of leaves makes this time of year the most beautiful and romantic. Since joining The Weather Network team in February 2011 as an On-Call Presenter she's gained an appreciation for the art of weather forecasting. "It's harder than rocket science, because it's changing all the time," she says. Farah has a Bachelors Degree in Journalism from Ryerson University. Her passion to connect to people ventured her to a career in broadcasting. While completing her degree, she did an internship at CTV. Working alongside prominent news anchors like, Lisa Laflamme and Scott Laurie. In 2007, she became a familiar voice of the radio airwaves as a reporter for CFRB News Talk 1010. Interviewing Arnold Schwarzenegger and flying upside down in a fighter aircraft during the CNE Air Show are some of Farah's favorite memories while working in radio. For the following two years, she volunteered for Rogers TV where she held the positions of a writer, videographer, editor and on-air host, covering the local Entertainment scene to the municipal elections. Her desire to propel forward led her to the green screen world of The Weather Network. "Almost everyone at least once a day thinks or talks about the weather." For Farah, the greatest reward is giving people the forecast to help them plan and prepare their day. When she's not in the studio, you'll likely bump into her by the lake jogging or walking her dogs. Also, outside work, Farah is involved in many fundraising events for charities including, girls Inc.,World Vision and The Canadian Cancer Society.

Gary Archibald

Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Gary Archibald is happy to be back in Canada on The Weather Network covering stories about Canadian weather and sharing in its ongoing, fascinating saga.

Gary's original career path was focused on science - he graduated with a B.Sc. (Hon) from the University of Toronto, and had thoughts of becoming a psychologist. However, his first loves of photography and the art of telling stories with pictures and sound have led him in an entirely different direction... After pursuing photographic work professionally, Gary found himself working in front of the camera as a model and actor. He has modeled for Roots Canada, Sony, Harry Rosen, Danier Leather and many other high-profile clients.

Gary has also appeared in numerous television commercials, and he made his motion picture debut in 2004's hit comedy Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

Realizing a potential career in media, Gary went back to school to study Broadcast Journalism at Centennial College. After starting his career as a television writer and editor, he returned to working in front of the camera, this time as a reporter and anchor. He started with Rogers Television, covering junior hockey with the Ontario Hockey League, then with The Weather Network (2002-2004), Global Television, and the A-Channel.

From the top media market in Canada to the top media market in America and the world, NBC scouted Gary in 2006, which is when he went off to work in the Big Apple. For three years Gary was a mainstay for the NBC Universal family of top-rated programs and networks.

Gary enjoys playing football (which he also coaches), hockey, baseball, tennis and downhill skiing. He loves to listen to music, paint and write poetry. Fall is his favourite season.

Karen Johnson

Before joining The Weather Network in 2002, Karen had her first experience with winter weather in the Prairies where she was the weather anchor and writer at A-Channel Edmonton's Breakfast Television.

A Toronto native, Karen has extensive experience in the television world as a producer, host, writer, reporter and weather anchor. After completing her studies in Broadcasting and Journalism and interning at CFTO TV in Toronto, she landed her first reporting job with CFMT TV (now OMNI). Karen covered a broad range of issues both domestic and international.

Quickly moving through the ranks, she became the entertainment anchor and host of "bollywood blvd," a Toronto based entertainment show covering the Indian film industry. Here she interviewed celebrities and presented entertainment news. Karen also covered the Toronto International Film Festival, Grammy Awards (Los Angeles) and Daytime Emmy Awards (New York City).

Cooking didn't come naturally for Karen, so when the station she was working for chose her to co-host a cooking show, she jumped at the opportunity to learn another skill! 13 years later "The Veggie Table" is still on the air nationally and internationally. Karen's passion for cooking inspired her to develop a website of South Asian vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes that can be found at www.thesouthasiantastingtable.com.

In spite of her busy schedule, Karen has found the time to earn her CMOS certification, and she has also been invited to speak at numerous engagements; in 2010, she was asked to emcee a luncheon for the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper.

After co-hosting mornings with Tom Reynolds for nine years, Karen can now be found covering national weather stories across Canada in the late evenings, starting at 11 pm EST.

Kasia Bodurka

Since the time she uttered her first words, Kasia Bodurka was labeled a "chatty Kathy." This was partly due to her name ("Kasia" is Polish for "Kathy"), but mostly for her undeniable gift of gab! For this reason it was no surprise to her former peers and teachers that Kasia ended up in broadcasting.

Kasia received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication and French from The University of Ottawa, and later studied Broadcast Journalism at Seneca College. She then went on to produce and host lifestyle television for community TV. She has also covered news, community events and entertainment both as a videographer and a reporter.

Kasia joined The Weather Network team in 2011.

Kevin Yarde

Kevin received an Honours Bachelor of Arts from York University and also attended the Ryerson School of Journalism. He then worked at Rogers Cable TV as a reporter and talk show host for the program "For Your Information."

Kevin joined TWN in 2000. What he really takes pride in is working outdoors: being able to tell it like it is and letting the audience know what they should, and should not, be wearing.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Unionville, Ontario, Kevin has been fascinated with Canadian weather since experiencing the blizzard of 1977.

To Kevin, rain, hail, wind, snow, sun, and heat are all enjoyable! He thinks he might be crazy, but he enjoys all the seasons Canada has to offer and would not have it any other way. "It would be boring to have the same forecast, day in and day out," he says.

Kevin likes to travel at least once a year to a new destination. In his spare time, he likes to watch movies, work out, go to the beach and spend time on a patio with friends.

You can catch Kevin on weekday mornings on The Weather Network.

Kim Macdonald

Kim MacDonald is a familiar face to anyone who watches The Weather Network. She made her debut in May 1998, the first day The Weather Network began broadcasting nationally from its new home in Oakville.

A native of St. Catharines, Ontario in the beautiful Niagara region, Kim attended Brock University where she received her BA in Culture and Language Communications. She continued her education in the radio/television/film course at Niagara College, and has since earned her CMOS certification. Kim's first jobs were in radio as a news announcer and morning show co-host first at CHOW in Welland and then on to 610CKTB and 97.7 HTZ FM. In her spare time, Kim volunteered at the local cable station, honing her skills as a television journalist, while still working full time in radio.

Kim loves the great outdoors but will not turn down an all-inclusive resort somewhere warm!

Lyndsay Morrison

Lyndsay brings a daily dose of sunshine to her weather broadcasts - no matter what the conditions are outside. With a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Ryerson University, Lyndsay began her on-air career at Rogers TV Peel Region, where she was a news reporter for First Local, the in-studio host of "High School SportsZone," and a remote arena host during the OHL playoffs.

Nadine Hinds-Powell

Nadine was born in Trinidad and Tobago, but moved to Jamaica to attend the University of the West Indies - graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Geography.

After graduating from university, Nadine immediately accepted a position at the Meteorological Service of Jamaica, where she spent six years. In 1998 she attained her Class-One Forecasters' Certificate in Meteorology at the Caribbean Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology.

She then returned to the Meteorological Service of Jamaica and represented the Service as one of their on-air meteorologists with Television Jamaica Limited. This is where she started her career in broadcast meteorology.

In 2002, Nadine took her love of weather with her to Canada, working at City TV and Global TV in Toronto before joining The Weather Network in 2008.

She notes "So much of the atmosphere is unknown - yet it is one of the major components that make life on earth possible. Understanding the way the atmosphere works is an exciting challenge." In her spare time Nadine enjoys reading, swimming, and working in the garden.

Natalie Thomas

Natalie joined TWN in the spring of 2006. While she is most recognized for giving viewers their weekend weather report, some of Natalie's personal highlights include reporting on the floods in Manitoba (spring 2011), covering Hurricane Bill and Tropical Storm Danny on back-to-back weekends (August 2009), and of course...being blown away in the UOIT wind tunnel!

Besides her on-camera work at TWN, Natalie also keeps busy behind the scenes as a writer and back-up assignment editor.

Natalie came to TWN after hosting Today's Waterloo Region, a 30 minute news program at Rogers TV in Kitchener. She also spent the summer of 2005 interning in Boston at CBS. She worked closely with the I-Team (Investigative Team) and was even sent undercover on a couple of assignments. (Make sure to ask her about the camera glasses she had to wear. It was very James Bond.)

Natalie holds a bachelor's degree in Broadcasting and Electronic Media from Appalachian State University. She graduated summa cum laude (4.0 GPA), while playing Division 1 basketball for the Mountaineers on a full athletic scholarship.

And just to warn you: "Basketball Natalie" is not as nice as real life Natalie. She's a lot more aggressive, and has been known to throw a few elbows!

When Natalie isn't on television, she's watching it! (Grey's Anatomy, Breaking Bad, 90210, Big Break, Survivor, American Idolthe list goes on...)

She's also guilty of wasting hours (and hours) on the internet. So you might as well join her!

Nicole Karkic

Nicole believes that all Canadians share a deep interest in the weather because of the profound effect it has on our daily lives. The weather can play a positive role, but can also be the root of many disastrous situations. This powerful relationship that we have with the weather compels us to study its phenomenon on a daily basis.

Some of Nicole's favorite memories outdoors include a big family ski trip to the beautiful hills of Mont Tremblant, summers lake side at camp in Ontario and an unforgettable rainy spring in Vancouver studying voice work at the UBC campus.

Nicole's path to broadcasting started as a love for arts and drama, which led her to study Theatre at Queen's University. Upon completing her degree, Nicole returned to her native Toronto and pursued roles in both theatre and film. However, through years of auditions, Nicole found herself drawn to hosting work instead and began working as a presenter for various networks such as Global, Rogers and The Score Television Network. From this experience her passion for broadcasting grew; in order to hone her skills as an on-air presenter, Nicole enrolled in the Broadcast Journalism program at Seneca College.

Nicole was offered a position at The Weather Network in 2009. She is very enthusiastic to be a part of such an esteemed weather information team. In her role as a weather broadcaster, Nicole is committed to provide accurate, informative and enjoyable forecasts for years to come.

One of Nicole's top travel goals is to take the time to travel across Canada to experience each beautiful province.

Shelley Steeves

It was a love of the outdoors and respect for the weather that drove Shelley Steeves to pursue a reporting career in The Weather Network's Maritime bureau.

The Moncton, New Brunswick native began her broadcasting career off-camera as a part-time technician at CBC Halifax. After graduating, Shelley produced and directed her own television show with Fundy Communications in Moncton.

In 1998, Shelley and her team launched TVNB, a group of local community programming stations that became the first provincial programming network in North America.

Shelley joined The Weather Network in July 1998, and actively seeks out weather related stories so the rest of Canada can see how Maritimers live and cope with their ever-changing climate.

Suzanne Leonard

Suzanne's warm and intelligent presentation has been a mainstay of The Weather Network's broadcast schedule since 1998. Her passion for communication, meteorology, news and lifelong learning make a winning combination for this broadcaster.

Suzanne has traveled extensively across Canada and overseas including Europe, India and Australia, and incorporates that first hand knowledge into her presentation. Like many Canadian immigrants, her introduction to winter was dramatic and abrupt. An October blizzard swooped down on Montreal, leaving 10-year-old Suzanne and her little sister to battle their way home from school on foot.

Suzanne enjoyed teaching television studio production at Sheridan College and the experience of mentoring young television and film professionals. She has also been a volunteer teacher of English as a second language. She has an extensive broadcast career which includes 10 years with TVOntario's Gemini Award-winning current affairs and children's programs. Suzanne holds a bachelor's degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University.

While she's come to love Canadian winters, summer is her favourite season. You'll often find her by a lake, working in her garden, hiking or backcountry canoeing. She keeps fit year-round with jogging, yoga and an active lifestyle. Suzanne is a self-described outdoor fanatic and spends as much time as possible outdoors, balancing being active with relaxation and solitude.
