They are trying really hard to convince us that they are telling the truth. In reality the weather forecasters are much like baseball players: Paid well to be successful about 30% of the time. Most of us would get fired from our jobs with that kind of record.

Every time I see this thread title, it makes me think of that scene in The Lost City :

Sandra Bullock's character: "Why are you so handsome?"
Brad Pitt's character (calmly smiling, all patient and helpful, like it's self-explanatory): "My dad was a weatherman."

I don' t notice anything about the speech, but our local weatherman looks like a big gawky enthusiastic puppy with oversized feet. I keep expecting him to get all tangled up and tip himself.

Which is a bit unfair because apparently he is quite a good athlete. But besides the big galumphing gawky he has that friendly waggy tailed puppy approach to life.

Other than that, the women obviously do not get paid well and it shows in the wardrobe. Some of them are sewing their own clothing. They do a good job of presenting the news or weather or whatever their job is that day, so no complaints about their work.

No one comes close to my favorite of all time Lloyd Lindsey Young (aka double L), who was the weatherman on chl 9 in Secaucus, NJ (NYC area TV station) in the 80s & early 90s. He was also on the air (TV or radio) off and on in the SF Bay area in the mid and late 1990s.

Loved him! I faxed him a message once to say Happy Birthday to my brother and he did!


These meteorologists of today do nothing but babble! They just go on and on about nothing. It's either going to rain or not, it's going to snow, or not. If so how many inches? What is the temp? That's all we need to know.

By the time they are done babbling, I have zoned out and end up not even knowing the forecast.
