Jim Hickey

Weather Presenter

Jim Hickey spent more than two decades using his dextrous vocabulary to predict the likely path of sun, rain and wind. A longtime TV One fixture as weather forecaster on the primetime news, Hickey has also brought his distinctive presentation style to a host of other shows, including Country Calendar and A Flying Visit

We live in two small islands, uplifted high, right on the fringe of the roaring 40s, westerly wind belt and a wind tunnel in the middle called Cook Strait. And big mountains which create huge differential weather patterns between east and west. There's always something happening. Jim Hickey in the Taranaki Daily News, 25 October 2012
