What does Suzanne love about the weather?
I find weather endlessly fascinating and thrive on the complexities and constant learning with a science like meteorology. I love the daily challenge of managing complex information for regions across Canada and being able to have a daily on-air ‘conversation’ with Canadians about what’s important to them.
