An avid skier and soccer player, David Jones got hooked on weather on the slopes of Grouse Mountain and the wind-swept playing fields of Ambleside Beach Park. After graduating from the meteorology program at the University of Alberta in 1985, he attended Meteorologist Course #7 in Toronto. His first posting was to the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Centre in Halifax where an interest in broadcast meteorology led to a weekend gig as a weather anchor. He returned to Vancouver in 1988, working the aviation, public, marine, satellite, and supervisor desks at the Pacific Storm Prediction Centre. Upon returning home, David pursued opportunities in the media, becoming a familiar voice and face in local radio and television.
In 2010 David was a spokesperson during the Vancouver Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games where three of his passions converged: skiing, weather and broadcasting. His current position is Supervisor of the Consultation Desk in the Pacific Storm Prediction Centre in Vancouver. With years of experience forecasting and broadcasting, David enjoys the challenge of making a complex science understandable and helping people make better weather-related decisions.
