Default Annoying things TV weather forecasters say

Apart from the infamous 'mini' tornados, I hate it when they say 'just
go to the coasts if you don't like hot weather' - yeah, like you can
just do that at a moments notice, never mind your job, etc...

One of the things that annoys me is when they talk of "The Far North
West", pointing at somewhere about 5 miles from Liverpool.... I'd have
to travel several hundred miles south to get to "the far north"

Well I hate it when they say things such as "It won't be no heat wave"
when its winter, or something like "maybe your off to pick up your
morning paper" or "maybe your having a picnic". The worste ones are
when the local newsreaders give an editorial of their own. "Its going
to be much warmer than of late" when its only 1C different.

"risk of a shower"
So, in all its gonna be dry but if it does rain - I told you so ;-(


"hefty showers" is the one that riles me.

Are these feelings of hatred occasional, scattered or isolated?

Or maybe they only occur during a hangover, when your mouth is tinder
dry?

My remedy is to go into the cubicle in your bathroom during an
electrical storm, and have a thundery shower.

Or possibly a wintry shower, if you can arrange to have one between Dec
1st and Feb 28th/29th.

Felly sgrifennodd Mark Carver :

I think you could make an argument for this one (not that I'd really want to
try), since temperature is a measure of the amount of heat, not the amount
of cold. Or something like that. Any pedants care to take over before I dig
myself a hole?
