Headline of the day

Never a dull moment in 75 years of weather forecasting

Quote of the day below said headline:

“The challenges we face have changed because society has changed,” said Met Éireann head of forecasting Gerald Fleming.

Followed in very close second by this one:

“The first director general of RTÉ [Edward J Roth] did not last all that long but he was from the US where weather broadcasting was a big deal and he insisted it was needed,” Mr Fleming said.

“If it weren’t for him it might have been a long time before we had televised weather forecasts.”
