The Top 10 Dallas/Fort Worth Weatherhumans on Your TV Set

Snowman.jpg
Let's start with this premise: Nobody knows nothin'.

Or, better said, nobody knows nothin' different than anybody else. Weatherhumans aren't like sportscasters, who can, on a given night, at least give you a prediction on opposite teams or breaking news in different sports. Weatherhumans on our TVs -- on all TVs -- usually agree other than a few degrees here or there.

It's not like one will predict snow and down the dial you'll get another saying sunny and 86. With all the electronic accu-gizmos and "computer models" these days, it's all one big homogenized yawn. What happened to hunches and gut feelings and "I've seen this before" and trick knees that "act up" ahead of the approaching Blue Norther?

Last weekend I saw most every local station breathlessly talking about a significant winter weather event, only to get a couple inches of snow in my yard. Everybody got it right, but everybody also over-sensationalized the impact.

When it comes to weatherhumans, we're no longer treated to classic greatness like Troy Dungan, Mike Burger, Kristine Kahanek or Harold Taft. Today's weather is all about style, not substance.

So in ranking our top weatherhumans, I took into account not prognostications but rather performance, personality and, yes, pizazz.

Weather - Finfrock.jpg
10. David Finfrock NBC 5 - Fastidious and persnickety, he's been at this a long time delivering the news in the tone of your high school guidance counselor.

 

Weather - Fields.jpg
9. Greg Fields ABC 8 - Imagine Devin Harris growing a pencil mustache, donning eyeglasses and passing out the weather.

 

Weather - Jackson.jpg
8. Ron Jackson Fox 4 - With a booming voice and a demonstrative, confident style, he's the Gordon Gekko of local weather.

 

Weather - Miller.jpg
7. Rebecca Miller CW Ch. 33 - Think a more polite, knowledgeable and robust Nancy Grace.

 

Weather - Lopez.jpg
6. Jennifer Lopez NBC 5 - Looks like every 2nd-grade teacher in Plano. Betcha a nickel she drives an SUV.

 

Weather - Mowry.jpg

​5. Larry Mowry CBS 11 - Young, upcoming and trustworthy. Straight outta Weatherman University.

I would only want Rebecca Miller for my personal meteorologist if there was chance of being snowed in for a month and we needed to eat someone.

The hotter the weatherchick, they less accurate and trustworthy their forcast becomes. There is no way a hot chick is smart enough to read and understand all data that goes into forecasting, but thats ok thats why they just put up the NWS forecast on their own maps. Steve McCauly and his do the math are the most accurate, and Delkus has the best personality, but then again Im not trying to nail the hottest weather chick in Dallas either

Richie, is this a list of hots-and-nots? Because any list of local meteorologists that doesn't have WFAA's Steve McCauley as Nos. 1-10 is an incomplete list.

In typical Richie fashion, this list ends with his horny fantasies. Why not just give an update to your 10 Hottest Local TV Women?

Greggo used to always say he loved Rebecca Miller. Also, according to Greggo, Rebecca Miller and Clarice Tinsley = hot. Kim Fischer = horse. Gotta love the Hammer.

Samantha Davies is cute as a button. Your point on Jennifer Lopez is pretty accurate, and I think she's pretty cute too.

Colleen Coyle is a bit plain looking but has upside.

Fiona Gorostiza is perfectly slutty looking.

It's time for an update to the Top 10 Local Hot TV Women list, Richie! Also, in addition to J-Lo and Samantha Davies, NBC added a nerdy cute black chick to the list of weather hotties - don't remember her name but I think she may be on weekends.

Bad Radio has ruined me. I can't hear the name Greg Fields without hearing the Carpenters in my head.

meh.

The only difference between this and the HL burning their 962nd Bob Dylan segment, is this does have some pictures of hot chicks.

The only reason Fiona is number 1 is b/c she is a friend of RAGE.

I think Richie started the list with good intentions, but ended it with who's hawwtest by the end. Which must be quite flattering to Delkus.

I think he did hottest tv chicks a few months ago...
