Diane Clare "Dianne" Oxberry (born 28 November 1967, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear) is an English broadcaster and weather presenter for the BBC regional news programme North West Tonight.

Oxberry originally joined the BBC as a personal assistant at Radio 2, having previously auditioned for a presenting role on the youth music series No Limits. She began her broadcasting career while working on BBC Radio 1, working alongside Steve Wright and later, becoming part of Simon Mayo's on-air team for the weekday breakfast show. In 1991, she became a presenter for the second series of the Saturday morning children's TV programme, The 8:15 from Manchester.

After studying meteorology[1] at the Met Office College in Berkshire, Oxberry joined BBC North West in 1995 as its first dedicated weather presenter.[2] Alongside her forecasting work, she has also previously co-presented the weekday breakfast show on BBC Radio Manchester (alongside Eamonn O'Neal) and has worked as a relief newsreader & presenter for North West Tonight.

Oxberry lives in Cheshire with her husband, Ian Hindle, whom she married in 1993. The couple met while working on The 8:15 from Manchester.
