Does anyone know if all the weather presenters are actually trained meteorologists?

What difference does being a trained meteorologist make? A lot of the time the weather is rotten anyway or inaccurate irrespective of who presents it.

No-one will ever beat Michael Fish's "don't be ridiculous madam" 1987 debacle...or will they?

Has anyone else ever seen Italian TV's weather men? Military garb; lots of braid and puffed out chest.

Only similarity with Sky babes...puffed out chest?!

No i will never forget that C***-up.

With sky you can tell when the weather is gonna be real bad. You get more cleavage and bigger smiles with the exception of Francis Wilson who is always so laid back you need to check him for a pulse.

I believe Francis is a trained meteorologist and Lisa Burke is a scientist of some description plucked from the glaxo company by francis wilson to join the weather team at sky.

What I mean to say is that they havn't graduated in meteorology.
