Chris St. Clair
Chris St. Clair has been a mainstay on The Weather Network since 1995 and was chosen as "Canada's Most Dependable Weatherman". After a start hosting mornings, Chris can now be seen on weekends. Viewers will also see Chris in the feature series "Weatherwise," which explores and explains all manner of weather phenomena, airing daily on The Weather Network. This program is also widely distributed to schools around the country as a teaching aid.
Before joining The Weather Network, Chris held various positions within the broadcast industry, including on-air, research and management. His first job was at CJCH Radio in Halifax in 1978, and from there he went on to work at broadcast outlets in Sarnia, Kingston and Montreal.
Chris is a licensed pilot who flies regularly and is type rated (trained) on several different aircraft. "Aviation is my hobby and favourite activity outside of my family," he says.
Chris also believes in green living: "I am an advocate for a healthier planet and the best way to be a greener citizen is to better understand our planet and how all of its parts are linked. Understanding the weather, the one thing that we all share everyday, is a good way to start. We are all naturally curious and if I can encourage someone to be just a little more interested in our Earth, then I feel I've done my job".
His first book Canada's Weather , from Firefly Books, is a Canadian best seller. The weather and climate of Canada is thoroughly detailed in this full colour, richly pictorial essay.
Chris St. Clair lives in eastern Ontario with his wife and daughter.
