True story.

Work TV is on the local news channel but the sound is off. Guy is watching the girl presenter. When the commercial comes on he says "Man, that weather girl is hot."

I tell him she's hotter than he realizes.

He asks how can she be hotter than he knows.

I tell him that she was doing a traffic report, not the weather.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 5 days ago

Because traffic is hotter than weather? How does this work again?

[-] [email protected] 111 points 5 days ago

Because there were clues in the background as to what the report was; such as a banner saying 'traffic report.'

He ignored everything that was unimportant.

Tarmac can be really really hot.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 days ago

Depends on the weather, though..

[-] [email protected] 92 points 5 days ago

He's only boring-ass in that suit jacket. Were he to remove it, you'd be able to appreciate his hot booty. Which of course he has, because he's a true meteorologist.

Meanwhile Estonian weather report:

I think you're mistaking him with the meaty urologist

Do you want subway surfers gameplay beside your weather report?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 days ago

Nah I prefer a GTA stunt race

[-] [email protected] 34 points 5 days ago

I prefer my weather objective not objectified.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 days ago

I'm glad I grew up to weather being presented by our local Bill Nye/Steve Irwing, if not by a real but not boring meteorologist. The big booty girls report showbiz and sports, which I both care the least in news.

Because people with well sized bottoms can't be good meteorologists?

[-] [email protected] 17 points 5 days ago

I mean no, but the people with meteorology degrees are probably not gonna be working a job where the number one requirement is to be hot (and not, y'know, have a meteorology degree).

[-] [email protected] 11 points 5 days ago

Are the "weather girls" on Mexican TV actual meteorologists or just presenters?

[-] [email protected] 14 points 5 days ago

Realistically, how many 'weather reporters' actually studied it? And of the ones who did how many have access to a private weather station?

[-] [email protected] 22 points 5 days ago* (last edited 5 days ago)

Private weather station?

It's pretty much impossible to make reliable forecasts based on the data of a singular weather station. The initial data comes in from a variety of sources including satellites, radars, surface observation stations (weather stations) and upper air soundings around the globe. All of the above are maintained by public sector organizations who collaborate and share the data because the weather is an inescapably global thing. During WW2 the Germans actually set foot in Canada to set up a weather station in an attempt to spread the coverage of their observation network.

Nowadays all that data is used as inputs for numerical weather prediction models, running on supercomputers in the basements of meteorological institutes and agencies. Big global ones like ECMWF and GFS are used pretty much by all meteorologists around the world, who look at those and other smaller, more local models. They compare the different forecasts and critically evaluate the probabilities of different outcomes. They apply their own judgement selecting the most credible raw forecast and then edit that if needed. All in all, it's a very global effort.

At least where myself and @[email protected] are from, meteorologists at the public broadcasting company (where that title is a requirement for getting the job) collaborate closely with their colleagues at the national meteorological institute. Their job is to comprehend the situation as presented by the institute, decide which bits of it are important, and then boil that down into a smooth and easy to understand presentation.

If a weather reporter isn't an actual meteorologist, then there is an actual meteorologist behind the scenes who made the presentation for the reporter to present.

You realize that your long and complex comment didn't mention big booty even once?



[-] [email protected] 15 points 5 days ago* (last edited 5 days ago)

Where I live I think they're all meteorologists or similar. That's why I'm wondering what's the situation in Mexico

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 days ago

I'm in the USA where it varies station by station, and even from news show to show.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 days ago
[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 days ago

I am willing to wager that in America, at least 95% of the people who report the weather live have degrees in meteorology or a related field. I almost took that career path.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 days ago
[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 days ago* (last edited 2 days ago)

The top one is a double major in broadcast journalism and political science and has a certificate in meteorology. The next american majored in meteorology and minored in math, and recently went back to get a masters in climate science. I could go through the whole list, but I have better things to do. Thanks for providing the source to prove my point.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 days ago

If you're worried about time management, don't dive into rabbit holes in the comment section of a thread about big booty weather girls.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 4 days ago

I hope they are at least professional journalists. I hope.

I'm happy my country doesn't do bullshit like that. Having a women report the weather solely because of their appearance is absurd.

We have meteorologists of both genders and yeah they usually look pretty decent, but they are just professionals that usually happen to look good and they are in no way whatsoever dressed like that.

Why even bother with being sexist about the weather?
