Weather Italian style!


Yes, that's a bloke in military uniform doing the weather.

This is the weather on TG2, Rai 2's news. It's put together by the Servizio Meteorologico dell'Aeronautica Militare, the Italian Meteorological Service; and as the Militare would suggest, it's part of the armed services. Which means that if you watch the weather on Rai 2, the forecaster will be a member of the military.

And with the inappropriately dressed women (called meteorine) doing the weather on Berlusconi's Mediaset channel Retequattro it goes from the sublime to the ridiculous...

Men in uniform presenting the weather? Sublime or ridiculous, at least there's something to counteract all the scantily clad women!

At us home, we have the weather girls like here the velline..., but if they say it would rain, it would for sure...
i just cannot get over the fact that here it seems to me they make up what they are saying....its almost always wrong...you can never count on the weather forecast in italy...its frustrating!

Hi Reka! I totally agree with you, and I just can't take the weather girls seriously!
