Aisling has loved clouds and weather since she was a little girl. She says she was always curious why the weather was different every day and why it was never warm in Ireland in the summer!
Many years later, she completed a Masters in Meteorology in UCD and then came to the UK to start a career as a weather forecaster with MeteoGroup UK. Three years later she retrained with the Met Office to become a low flying aviation meteorologist working alongside the RAF. Later she moved to the BBC where she worked as a forecaster and eventually a weather presenter for the BBC. She joined ITV in 2017 as a weather presenter for ITV Anglia and UTV.
Aisling sits on the board of the Royal Meteorological Society and is interested in helping younger people with careers in science. When Aisling is not in the office she is busy running around after her two young boys who don’t seem one bit interested in the weather!
Chris is a local boy to the Anglia region, raised in Norwich, Norfolk. He’s always been interested in weather, ever since building his first rain gauge with his dad when he was six. But it wasn’t until high school that his passion for physical geography developed. Chris graduated from the University of Reading in 2012, joined the Met Office in Exeter and qualified as a meteorologist.
During his time at the Met Office, Chris worked alongside the military, forecasting at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, the Army Air Corps in Wattisham, Suffolk and a six-month detachment to RAF Ascension Island in the South Atlantic Ocean. Before joining ITV Anglia Weather in 2017, Chris regularly presented the weather on Channel 5.
Outside of work, Chris enjoys exploring new cities around the world, sailing, socialising with friends, and taking in the fresh air by the coast. He also loves eating out and trying new food, but regularly goes to the gym to compensate!
