Too much time wasted talking about weather

I have to agree with Alan Pergament’s column regarding the length of the weather forecasts on local news. Ninety-nine percent of the viewers want to know the temperature and weekly forecast and that’s it. We don’t care about the Doppler, barometric pressure or if the temperature was 20 degrees lower at this time last year. This time could be better spent on local and national news. The future meteorologist or 1 percent who actually care can tune to the Weather Channel.
