Clarissa Faye Nasir born June 20, 1970 in Milton Keynes, England is a meteorologist, GMTV presenter, and producer.
Clare Nasir is descended partially patrilineally from a Sikh family line in Amritsar, in the Punjab region of India. At some point in the past, this branch of her family line converted to Christianity. Her family is very musical and Clare plays the saxophone and three of her brothers are professional musicians. Clare is married to radio personality, presenter and DJ Chris Hawkins.
It was annouced on the 23rd June that clare is three months pregnant with her first child. She is due on New Year's Eve.
Clare attended the Kingsbrook School, in Milton Keynes. After obtaining A-levels in Mathematics, Geography and History in 1988, she studied at the University of Plymouth and graduated with an honours degree in Mathematics, continuing on with her masters degree in Applied Marine Sciences. She then began her training at the Met Office to become a qualified weather forecaster.
Two years later, Clare joined the London Weather Centre, offering weather forecasting and presenting services to London radio stations and media outlets. Subsequently, she took a position as forecaster and presenter for Anglia Television. She returned to London to work for Carlton Television in 1998, spending almost two years before taking a position with GMTV. In 2001 Clare was made weather producer and presenter being responsible for all weather output and weather-related features on GMTV.
She also reports from worldwide field locations on meteorological issues and items of correlative interest. Probably her most famous TV moment, and one which has often been re-shown, saw her reporting from Bridlington seafront which was being lashed by wind and rain. In the middle of her report, an enormous wave burst over the harbour wall, completely covering her and sending her flying out of shot. Undeterred, she picked herself up and finished her report, having to speak directly into the boom microphone as she had lost her microphone pack.
As well as presenting the weather on GMTV, Clare has hosted several series, including "Interactive Wedding", the travel series "Great Escapes", and "Extreme Weather", wherein she investigated globally changing weather patterns.
