CBC meteorologist Peter Coade breaks Guinness World Record for Longest Career as a Weather Forecaster.

Peter Coade, the Maritime’s most-experienced meteorologist, has broken the Guinness World Record for the Longest Career as a Weather Forecaster.

In October 2012, Peter marked 50 years as a weather forecaster and meteorologist. The official certificate received from the London headquarters of the Guinness World Records states: “The longest career as a weather forecaster is 50 years, 8 months and 21 days, and was achieved by Peter Coade (Canada) at CBC Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada from 1 October 1962 to 21 June, 2013.”

“I’m thrilled to receive this honour,” says Peter Coade. “I’ve had a very rewarding career in broadcast media and meteorology. I couldn’t be happier. I began my career in the black and white days of CBC and anticipate ending it with CBC.”

Peter, 70, still works as a broadcast meteorologist at CBC Maritimes, so his record-building continues. He can be heard Monday to Friday on CBC Radio One on the six morning shows throughout the Maritimes.

“Peter is a mainstay in weather forecasting and trusted by audiences throughout the Maritimes. We’re very happy for him and wish him our heartiest congratulations on this Guinness World Record achievement,” says Andrew Cochran, Senior Managing Director, Atlantic Canada, for CBC English Services.

Peter joined the federal government weather service on October 1, 1962, where he was trained in the science of meteorology. During his tenure at the government, Peter worked in Truro, Nova Scotia, Goose Bay, Labrador and Toronto, Ontario in Canada.

During this time, he could be heard on local radio providing daily weather forecasts for listeners. It was in Goose Bay, that Peter started his media career with the CBC in 1967. He presented the weather nightly from CFLA-TV, to a largely American audience, members of the USAF and their families.

While stationed in Toronto with the federal weather service, he also held the position of staff meteorologist for radio station CFRB, working with notable Canadian personalities like Gordon Sinclair and Betty Kennedy.

Peter worked for ATV/ASN from March of 1990 until he re-joined the CBC in September 2007. For six years, he was meteorologist on CBC News Nova Scotia and CBC News New Brunswick suppertime shows as well as CBC Maritimes at 11. During that time he also gave daily weather updates to many CBC Radio One shows throughout the Maritimes.

On Dec. 3, 2012, Peter became CBC Radio One’s morning meteorologist, switching roles with fellow CBC meteorologist Kalin Mitchell. Peter provides morning listeners in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island with their up-to-the-minute daily weather forecasts. Peter and Kalin provide the most comprehensive weather coverage in the region.

Peter’s very first appearance on CBC Television was back in the late 1950s, when one day he job shadowed weatherman Rube Hornstein for a day.

From that very first experience, he’s been hooked on weather and is now the ‘go to local weather forecaster’ for CBC Radio audiences throughout the Maritimes.

The previous Guinness World Record for the longest career as a weather forecaster was 48 years, 2 months, 27 days – achieved by Dave Devall (Canada) at CTV Toronto, Ontario, Canada from 7 January 1961 to his retirement on 3 April, 2009.

Aug. 1 , 2013

Peter Coade, the Maritimes' most experienced meteorologist, is marking a career milestone forecasting the weather for 50 years.

Peter joined the federal government weather service in the autumn of 1962, where he was trained in the science of meteorology. During his tenure at the government, Peter worked in Truro, NS, Goose Bay, NL and Toronto, ON. It was in those early days he began on-air forecasts for local radio.

It was in Goose Bay, that Peter started his media career with the CBC in 1967.

He presented the weather nightly from CFLA-TV, to a largely American audience, members of the USAF and their families. While stationed in Toronto with the federal weather service, he also held the position of staff meteorologist for radio station CFRB, working with personalities like Gordon Sinclair and Betty Kennedy.

Peter worked for ATV/ASN from March of 1990 until he re-joined the CBC in September 2007.

Peter’s very first appearance on CBC Television was back in the late 1950’s, when one day he job shadowed weatherman Rube Hornstein for a day. From that very first experience, he’s been hooked on weather and is now the ‘go to local weather forecaster’ for CBC Television audiences throughout the Maritimes.

Marking 50 years as a meteorologist is not the only big number Peter is celebrating this year. In September, he turned 70. He was born in the Hydrostone area, in his family home on Livingstone Street in north-end Halifax. And he married his wife Donna, the same year he began his meteorology career in 1962. They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

Congratulations Peter on 50 years of keeping Canadians informed on the latest weather forecasts. We believe there is some kind of record here and perhaps it’s a Guinness World Record.

We are happy to continue to ask: “What will the weather be like tomorrow Peter?”

We are collecting best wishes to help celebrate Peter's 50 year milestone. Please leave a greeting below:

Congrats Sir, well deserved after such milestones. My wife's grandmother, Hattie Calnen (nee Brophy) lived next door to your mother down here in Prospect where many an old tale was heard.

My mother who passed away three years ago in her 101 yrs. watched you every night and could often be heard saying,"He's a smart looking cus,and knows his stuff to."

Congratulations Peter,
Ive watched you for many years on the family television. When I joined the forces I always went home  and watched some more.

Thanks for everything unofficial Dad!

- Wayne Harvey

Hearty congratulations, Peter! Growing up in Halifax, your voice summoned the next day's weather, year after year.

Cheers, and thanks for all your good work!

All the best.
- Kathleen Moriarty

Congratulations, Peter, on your half-century career milestone! 
Your penetrating insight into weather and climate have provided enormous benefits to Canadians in the Maritimes.  Your forecasts have enabled everyone to understand the essentials of atmospheric science, and to make better decisions with regards to their daily activities and travels.  Your forecasts have also brought economic benefits to employers working in industries that are weather-dependent, including fishing, construction, and resource exploration.
Yours truly,
- Michael Frind.

Dear Peter,
How I wish I could have had access to your wonderful weather knowledge and forecasting skills before I landed in Canada in the middle of a snowstorm many years ago dressed in the height of Scottish winter fashion - leather clogs and a donkey jacket.  Thanks to you and many great UNB colleagues I was re-togged and was much better prepared for wind, sun, rain and snow from thereon.  "You are my sunshine..." springs to mind as I wonder how best to salute your outstanding contribution to so many of our daily lives!  Bravo Mr. Gentleman Weatherman :-).

You are the Best!!!!! I remember as a child watch Rube Hornstein and he would always end the forecast by flipping that huge piece of chalk and he would always say " And that's the weather!) Peter, you are the only one that is on par with Rube. You are the greatest!
-  Don MacFadyen

Hey there Mr Coade. I sure hope that you get a window now having reached this important milestone. If anyone needs a window to do his work, it's a weatherman. Is it possible that you are the only windowless forecaster in Canada? The shame of it all. :-)
- Grant Walker

After reading all the well wishes, it is readily apparent that you were well liked and respected as both an individual and a professional. Both my wife and I have had the good fortune to be able to watch your evening weather forecast and your nightly forecasts will be missed by us both. All the best in your future endeavours.
- Dan Keast

Hi  "Mr Weatherman " you took over from Rube and enhanced upon his wealth of knowledge and added to it with the current age of Technical Gadgetry. You read with depth and are concise as you study the various models to give the " traveling public " the most accurate readings of your time when doing your "weather spots." You are not afraid to look beyond and warn us folks to be concerned about what may come our way if certain analysis come closer together. So for this diligent approach you have credibility.  I am a "weather buff" and I salute you as our " #1 Canadian Weather Man" in Canada. Congratulations on your 50th Milestone and your stellar achievements.:)

Peter, huge congratulations on such a significant milestone.  For 50 years you have come into our homes and guided us weatherwise daily.  My mom, who passed away 9 years ago, swore by your forecasts.  She was right - when I need to know what the weather is going to be - YOU are the source I seek. Thanks for your dedication.  You're more than we deserve!

Peter, You are the best. I have certainly enjoyed you giving the weather over the past years. I remember you calling me on the phone to let me know when my photos would be posted on the weather , and at that time we talked on how you got started doing the weather .Some day I still plan to make a trip into Halifax to visit you at the TV station. I will turn 69 on Jan.10, 2013, close to your age. Congratulations on your 50 years of good service.
- David E. Cranton , Belleisle, Annapolis Co., N.S.

I live in Truro and remember some bad snow storms in my earlier days. I also recall you using a chalk board like Rube when you were giving us the weather report.  My, my how we have changed. Now it is less snow and more rain. I guess that's global warming.
Happy 50 Years,

Congratulations on your accomplishments to date and what I hope will be many more in the future from an Upper Canadian who had the good fortune to live in the Maritimes for 16 years.   You were the authoritative source for weather information.  When the going got tough you told us how tough it was going to get.  Juan, White Juan, the gentle breezes in the Highlands of Cape Breton and a hundred Nor' Easters in between.  We still tune to see what you have in store for our many friends still fortunate to live in the home of interesting weather.  All the best.,

Dear Mr. Coade,
Just wanted congratulate you on marking 50 years as a meteorologist and share a funny story on how you are a part of our family's life.When my niece Ella was about 3 years old, she starting getting upset when you came on the TV.  When we asked her why, she told that you were "naughty with your computer".  We think all our years of complaining about NS weather sunk in, and she believed that you were the cause of all the rain and snow.  From ages 3 to 5 you became a villain to my niece, someone who used his computer to make it rain.  We even have video of the games we would play where she would hunt for you around my parent's yard armed with wrapping paper rolls and bubbles (apparently your weakness). She is turning 7 soon and sadly growing out of our "Peter Coade Games".  But the memory of how Ella thought you controlled the weather and that you were naughty will always bring a smile to my face. Thank you for always delivering the weather to the people of Nova Scotia, rain, snow or shine!
- Jyll Hansen

Congratulations Uncle Pete! Since I work in the airline industry, I travel coast to coast and work with people from all corners of this country. I have discovered that Peter Coade is well known and respected by all my eastern compatriots! I have not yet met a Maritimer who does not know who is, everybody says the same thing; "I love Peter Coade!"

I like the photo of you doing the weather with the marker. I remember the TV weather men doing the forecast with the chalk and chalkboard back in the day. The new computerized screens are a great advancement but the forecasters really had to know their stuff then. Please keep us up to date for Sussex, NB. Since we are in a valley our weather isn't always the same as Moncton, Saint John or Fredericton but you do a great job of letting us know what to expect. Thanks Peter and hope you keep forecasting for many years to come! :)

Peter, you have been doing the weather for my entire life. It doesn't matter what we might be watching, but we turn to whatever channel you're on to get the weather every night. I still remember you forecasting what we in Moncton refer to as the "Storm of '92," the incredible storm that brought 162 cm of snow to our city. You prepared us for what was coming and you talked us through the week that we were cut off from the world - but not from each other. Always dependable, a friendly face and a calm voice. Many congratulations on your 50 years in meteorology.

You go Peter!!!! Show them young cloud watchers how the wind blows.

- PD Lynch

Hi Peter, I also grew up in the north-end, a few streets over from the Hydrostone. When we were kids we lived with our grandmother, who was a good friend of your Mom, Jessie. After supper, we would all watch the news on TV, and my nan would always say, "there's Jessie Coade son, on TV. And we would all watch you tell us what the weather was going to be for the next day. Thanks for the memories, Peter.-
- Patricia MacLeod

Hi Peter, Congrats on 50 years - you can't possibly be that old :) I always enjoyed your visits to the call centre during Xmas Daddies.
