Cindy Day is CTV Atlantic’s chief meteorologist on CTV News at 5, CTV News at 6 and the Late News at 11:30 p.m. Best known for her comprehensive on-camera forecasts, Cindy has been working in weather on and off-camera for nearly 30 years.
Cindy joined CTV in September 2007 and has become a key member of the CTV Atlantic family. Not only does she provide up-to-the-minute forecasts for viewers, she also publishes a weather blog and populates her Twitter and Facebook pages with weather facts and forecasts. Her book, Grandma Says - Weather Lore by Cindy Day, was snapped off store shelves and landed on the 2012 Globe and Mail year-end Top 20 list.
A job at CFRA radio in Ottawa kick-started Cindy’s media career. As host of the program Ottawa AM, Cindy was the first full-time meteorologist on private radio in Canada. Eventually she created her own business, Weather by Day, providing seasonal forecasts, climate data and radio reports for Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
Originally from Bainsville, Ont., Cindy studied at both McGill and Lakehead Universities, obtaining a degree in meteorology. Her first job was with Environment Canada, where she briefed pilots at the MacDonald Cartier Airport in Ottawa.
Cindy grew up in a bilingual household and is fluent in both English and French. She moved to the East Coast 18 years ago and now calls the Maritimes home.
An admitted chocoholic and the Montreal Canadiens' biggest fan, Cindy loves to collect umbrellas for those rainy Maritime days. She lives in Dartmouth and enjoys skiing and cooking in the winter and golfing and gardening in the summer.
