Clare’s first love has always been science, in particular, the meteorology. She is a Met Office trained weather forecaster with 20 years’ experience. During her 10 years as GMTV’s weather anchor, she was in charge of the output and production for science and climate stories. She also presented many strands on travel, lifestyle, and special awards.
Clare is today a full-time weather forecaster for 5 News on Channel 5 and remains one of the most well-liked weather presenters on TV.
She writes regularly for The Huffington Post. Her love of science is accompanied by a wealth of qualifications, including a recent diploma in environmental policy. In 2013, she co-presented for CBBC on a science documentary series called Fierce Earth.
Her other passion is sport and fitness. Clare works out regularly and enjoys kickboxing. Her first fitness DVD, Clare Nasir’s Boot Camp, was released in late December 2009 and has become a bestseller. She conducts health and well-being workshops and writes a regular blog on the subject.
Clare is a published author. Her first children’s book on clouds, Colin the cloud, went to number one in the Amazon children’s chart and was followed by three further books in the Cloud Academy series. Clare spends some of her time talking to schools and children’s groups about weather and science.
Clare is the ambassador for the National Campaign on Healthy Air. The role involves working closely with Client Earth, an environmental law firm, and speaking for the campaign at the House of Lords, numerous events, and press interviews.
Clare is also an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust and a third-party advocate for the nuclear energy industry for which she has chaired and spoken at countless meetings. She is married to Chris Hawkins, a presenter on BBC Radio 6 Music, and they have a eight-year-old daughter called Sienna.
