Could be it's just me, but isn't there an overwhelming



female bias in the weather presenting?



OK: Lisa, Denise, Isobel, Jo and Lucy all do a good job,



but Francis (the most professional and informative one



of the whole team) seems to be out on his own.



Perhaps it suits him to work the evening shifts.



There are a number of excellent young male



weather presenters currently working for the BBC....



maybe it's high time to offer one of them a job on Sky!!!

Last week's Rory Bremner programme had a wonderful take-off of Francis. All his mannerisms were there, and it was done in an affectionate way.I think Francis would have enjoyed it.It's been said before, but Francis has an amazing watchable style. He has no rival on any channel!

It is definitely true that there is a female bias as far as Sky News Weather is concerned, but that doesn't surprise me. Plus, IMO a few past and present BBC presenters, like Rob McElwee, are easily up to Francis standards, and let's not forget the legend that is Michael Fish

I love Francis, total legend. I always imagine that he has had a tipple before reading the weather. Fab guy!The Rory Bremner sketch was hilarious
