Watch: A manic morning for 5 live's weather presenter
I’m Simon King and I’m 5 live and 6 music’s weatherman. Working across two stations during the morning can be pretty hectic, especially when there is a lot of weather going on.
The hardest part of my job is having to be flexible with what I say so it fits into the ever changing time allotted to reading the weather.
I also try and keep listeners up-to-date on social networking sites but trying to fit the forecast into 140 characters is a challenge.
It’s all good fun though, especially when some of the presenters like to play around a bit. Take a look at my typical morning:
