Charlie Powell

Weather Presenter, ITV West Country

Follow @ITVCharlieP

Charlie first caught the weather bug in his early teens when he was watching thunderstorms from his bedroom window. A self-confessed weather geek from an early age sent him on his path to studying geography and meteorology at the University of Birmingham, before joining the Met Office in 2008. Most of his time there was spent as a forecaster and he ended up fully immersed briefing weather broadcasters and presenting a few videos. In June 2018 an opportunity arose to move from behind the camera to in front of it, and he’s loved being part of the West Country weather team ever since.
