Farah's favorite time of the year is autumn. She says, "The weather is perfect. Not too cold and not too warm." She adds, "The changing colour of leaves makes this time of year the most beautiful and romantic."
Since joining The Weather Network team in February 2011 as an on-call presenter, Farah has gained an appreciation for the art of weather forecasting. "It's harder than rocket science, because it's changing all the time," she says.
Farah has a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Ryerson University. Her passion for connecting with people led her to a career in broadcasting. While completing her degree, she did an internship at CTV and worked alongside prominent news anchors, including Lisa Laflamme and Scott Laurie.
In 2007, she became a familiar voice on the radio airwaves as a reporter for CFRB News Talk 1010. Interviewing Arnold Schwarzenegger and flying upside down in a fighter aircraft during the CNE Air Show are some of Farah's favorite memories while working in radio.
For the following two years, Farah volunteered for Rogers TV, where she was a writer, videographer, editor and on-air host, covering everything from the local entertainment scene to the municipal elections.
Her desire to propel forward led her to the green screen world of The Weather Network. "Almost everyone at least once a day thinks or talks about the weather," she says. For Farah, the greatest reward is giving people the forecast to help them plan and prepare their day.
When Farah is not in the studio, you'll likely bump into her by the lake jogging or walking her dogs. She's involved in many fundraising events for charities including: Girls Inc., World Vision and The Canadian Cancer Society.
