Owain Wyn Evans is an award winning television presenter, regularly seen or heard on BBC One and Radio 5Live. Owain is known across the UK and beyond as the drumming weatherman, who brings a certain level of flamboyance and panache to everything he does.
Having worked as a BBC presenter across the UK for over 15 years, he is currently the senior weather presenter for Media City based BBC North West Tonight – where you’ll see him not only delivering the forecast every evening, but also displaying a fine array of three piece suits, brooches and pocket squares. Owain continues to contribute to an array of national programmes.
A semi professional drummer, Owain has a love of all things musical and became known to audiences around the world in 2020, after energetically drumming along to the BBC News theme – the clip amassing millions of views worldwide. He is no stranger to viral videos – having produced a RuPaul’s Drag Race themed weather forecast in 2017, as well as delivering a forecast in 9 different languages for International Mother Tongue Day in 2018 – Owain’s own mother tongue is Welsh.
