Cindy Day is CTV Atlantic’s Chief Meteorologist on CTV News at 5, CTV News at 6 and the Late News at 11:30 pm. Best known for her comprehensive on-camera forecasts, Cindy has been working in weather on and off camera for close to 25 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. She recently published her first book, Grandma Says - Weather Lore by Cindy Day, which made 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.
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.
Originally from Bainsville, Ont., Day grew up in a bilingual household and is fluent in both English and French. She moved to the East Coast 15 years ago and now calls the Maritimes home.
An admitted chocoholic and the Montreal Canadiens' biggest fan, Day loves to collect umbrellas for those rainy Maritime days. She lives in Dartmouth with her beagle Bix, and enjoys skiing and cooking in the winter and golfing and gardening in the summer.
