Holly is a Met Office trained forecaster with an MSc in Meteorology.
After completing her studies at Reading University she spent a year training as a forecaster before heading to RAF Coningsby.
Whilst there she provided detailed forecasts and daily briefings for the aircrew of the Eurofighter Typhoons and classic World War II aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. (You have to be pretty sure of your forecasting skills to tell a room full of pilots they can't go flying!)
Holly was then offered a job with BBC Weather where she briefed the national and regional presenters before eventually making her own move in front of the camera.
Now she is delighted to be joining the Meridian team where she can use her experience to keep the region up to date with the forecast every day.
The first named storm of the year, Storm Aileen, is set to bring winds of up 75 miles per hour to parts of the UK this week.Read the full story ›
