I’m Ross Hull, meteorologist for Global News. I forecast the weather for 6 provinces across Canada and report on extreme weather stories from around the world. AMA.
Hi I’m Ross Hull, a meteorologist at Global News in Canada. I’ve been in the weather business for close to 15 years and I’ve been lucky enough to have lived across our diverse, weather-rich country while doing it.
Every week I forecast the weather for ten cities and cover major international weather stories. Basically, I’m the guy who gets to explain what the bomb in bomb cyclone means.
I take my job seriously, but sometimes I have to use my meteorological powers to let the people know that winter is coming.
You’d think Canadians would be used to the winter routine by now, but as soon as a major storms sets its sights on us, hysteria usually ensues. It’s my job to show the people what they can truly expect. A busted winter weather forecast can mean a lot of negative feedback (and I’m not talking about the meteorological process.)
You may also know me from my acting days— I was on Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Student Bodies— but I’ve always had a passion for broadcast meteorology, so I’m actually living the dream right now.
I’m here to answer your questions on meteorology, my media/acting career so far, and who the White Walkers are.
EDIT: Thanks for all the questions but I need to start working on today's forecast. I will pop in and answer a few more later.
EDIT: It's been great and thanks for all your questions but time to declare this AMA closed.
