Holly is currently on maternity leave and we shall welcome her back in 2021!
Philippa was born and bred in Southampton and is now living back in her home county of Hampshire. She decided she wanted to be a Weather Presenter at the age of 7 so it has been a long and interesting journey! After graduating from Reading University Philippa joined the Met Office, initially as a Broadcast Assistant at the BBC Weather Centre.
Philippa qualified as a meteorologist in 2003 and then spent 5 years in London forecasting behind the scenes at ITV Weather, followed by a further 8 years forecasting for the Royal Artillery on the Salisbury Plain. During this time, she began presenting the weather for ITV on an ad hoc basis before officially joining the ITV Weather team in 2017. When she's not cloud-spotting, Philippa particularly enjoys running, baking, skiing and keeping tabs on her delinquent rescue cat.
