Holly Green gained her degree in Mathematics at Cardiff University and spent time presenting on student radio, which fired her interest in the media. Holly has always been fascinated by the weather and went on to study for an MSc in Meteorology at Reading University.
Holly Green joined the Met Office straight after graduating from Reading and spent a year training as a forecaster. Her next stop was RAF Coningsby, where her new-found skills couldn’t have been put to the test in a more demanding environment, as she provided detailed forecasts and daily briefings to the pilots of the Eurofighter Typhoons and the classic World War II aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Holly Green was then offered a job at the BBC Weather Centre, where she spent an exciting couple of years working as a Duty Weather Manager alongside the national presenters.
Keen to widen her horizons, Holly Green successfully applied to join the weather team at BBC Spotlight in August 2013. Given my interest in meteorology and media, this is my dream job and it’s great to be part of such a friendly and happy team says Holly.
