Taylor has a degree in City and Regional Planning from Cardiff University where he studied before working for a local council in Lincolnshire. In the next couple of years, Taylor took physics and mathematics courses through the Open University in order to improve his chances of gaining a place on the weather-forecasting programme at the Met Office College.
Having worked as a Met Office meteorologist since 1998, Matt joined the BBC Weather team in 2004, originally working at the Cardiff weather centre. He now broadcasts across a range of BBC outlets, including BBC One, BBC News, BBC World News, Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 4 and 5 Live. He's a regular weather forecaster on BBC Breakfast, mainly at the weekends and also often forecasts for Radio 4's Today.
His interests include golf, squash and football; in an interview, he ruefully admitted the worst thing about his work is the shifts.
