When I tune in to a weather forecast on TV or radio, I want to know what the weather is going to be. I do not want five minutes of talk about fronts and low-pressure systems followed by a 10-second forecast.
Invariably, I go into a hypnotic trance midway during the preamble and don't wake up till after the forecast is over. Then I have to wait till the next weather report comes up.
Is it just me? (Don't answer that.)
