Growing up in southern Alberta gave meteorologist Peter Quinlan a glimpse into some fascinating weather patterns.
After taking an exciting ‘Violent Weather’ class at the University of Alberta, he quickly switched gears out of pre-medicine, graduating from the Atmospheric Science B.Sc. degree program.
After completing internships in Edmonton and Lloydminster, Peter was hired as a Television as a camera operator, but his role quickly expanded to include reporting, anchoring news, and eventually weather.
In September 2012, Peter became a CMOS endorsed meteorologist, awarded by the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society.
Shortly after he joined the Global News team where he has forecasted for cities across the country, including Vancouver, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. In 2018 Peter was thrilled to join the talented Global Okanagan team and always looks forward to seeing Your Okanagan photos come into his inbox each day.
He especially enjoys the challenge of mountain and valley forecasting, which keeps him on his toes each night as he prepares his forecast for Global Okanagan News at 5, 6:30 and 11 as well as on GlobalNews.ca/Okanagan/Weather.
Other career highlights include working at Environment Canada, preparing a report for the City of Edmonton that examined the impact of climate change on the city and conducting research at the U of A that studied the impact of Greenland’s melting glaciers on ocean and atmospheric circulation patterns.
In his spare time, Peter enjoys relaxing, hiking, cross-country skiing, spending time with friends, playing piano and singing in choir.
