CBC News: Weather Centre

From Tsunamis to hurricanes and tropical storms to blizzards, Mother Nature's often destructive wrath can dominate our news. In response to the need for comprehensive coverage of local and international weather news, CBC NEWS created the CBC NEWS: WEATHER CENTRE in November 2005.

The Weather Centre is staffed by fully qualified meteorologists, including award-winning Claire Martin based in Vancouver, working both on-camera and behind the scenes, to create graphics, track storms and forecast weather.

These Meteorologists provide weather for CBC News: Morning, CBC News Today, The National, The Weekend show, and CBC News @ Six, among other programs.

In addition, they generate maps and weatherboards which are sent to cities across Canada for the individual 6pm regional news broadcasts.

As qualified forecasters, the Weather Centre team predict weather using data collected from Environment Canada and other sources. The centre also covers active weather for the country and will report watches and warnings as issued by Environment Canada. They also track international weather events.

To more accurately provide weather for the provinces, The Weather Centre has hubs positioned across the country.

The Weather Centre continues to expand its coverage and ability to provide up-to-date accurate weather information for CBC viewers.

This program belongs to the following categories:

  • News: International
  • News: National
