The 47-year-old is a regular weather presenter on the BBC’s Midlands Today, East Midlands Today and North West Tonight regional bulletins.
She grew up in Coventry and originally trained in dance and drama at the independent Pattison College. Her theatrical training earned her a role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, but that was as far as it went. Sara kickstarted her broadcasting career when she hosted a regular afternoon programme, Sentimental Sunday, on hospital radio, while also working behind the scenes at Mercia FM – now Free Radio Coventry & Warwickshire – in the early nineties.
She was later chosen to present the Two Guys and a Girl Breakfast Show on Leicester Sound, which included a segment that saw her interview different celebrities in a jacuzzi. One of her first celebrity interviews was with Boyzone’s Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch – thought it was just before they found fame.

Sara Blizzard Weather Reporter Profile
I trained in all aspects of dance and drama at Pattison’s Dancing Academy and College in Coventry and I think my family often thought I would end up with a career on the stage.
I did get the chance to appear in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat with a rather naughty donkey who always charged across the stage and in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Coventry Apollo Theatre — but that is as far as it went.
My first taste of broadcasting came when I joined a local hospital radio station at Walsgrave General and I was given the chance to present a regular Sunday afternoon programme “Sentimental Sunday”. At the same time, I was working behind the scenes at Mercia FM — the independent local radio station for Coventry.
A year later I was chosen to present the “Two Guys and a Girl” Breakfast Show on Leicester Sound working with two fellow presenters aptly named Guy. The show was a lot of fun with one favourite bit of mine where I got to interview a number of different celebrities in a Jacuzzi (with the help of sound effects of course).
I remember turning up one day at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester to interview an up and coming band who were new to the music world. I later discovered I had interviewed a very young Ronan Keating and Shane from Boyzone!! A while later, Live TV based in Canary Wharf called me in for a screen test and I was offered a job working as a newsreader/reporter at one of their affiliates in Liverpool.
Talk about a baptism of fire! My first day on screen was the day of the Grand National bomb scare, I had never been in front of a TV camera before and there I was broadcasting live from the main entrance at Aintree for 6 hours, I have to admit my knees didn’t stop knocking until I got home in the evening.
During my time with LIVE, I presented a number of programmes from Vets and Pets to Live Drive. The one I became very involved with was the local Crimestoppers programme “Merseybeat”. It gave an in-depth insight into policing on Merseyside and in return Merseyside Police Force made sure I experienced every aspect of their work.
I joined BBC East Midlands Today in 1999 replacing Lisa Dransfield as the main weather presenter and after training at Television Centre I was soon working on the lunchtime programme and on East Midlands Today. I really do enjoy the job because it is so varied and always live. We do not have an auto-cue to rely on during the forecast and we also have to talk for whatever duration is required so it always keeps us on our toes.
