I need to put some weed-n-seed down on the lawn, but I need to know if it's going to rain in the next few days. What do I want to see? The five-day forecast.
I've got that coupon for a free car wash. Should I use it today, or wait until the weather is better? The five-day forecast would be helpful.
Camping? Five-day forecast. Boating? Five-day forecast. Golfing? Five-day forecast. Barbecue? Propane. (And the five-day forecast.) Planting a garden? Five-day forecast. Burying some bodies at a remote location? Five-day forecast.
Basically, any time I see the weather-person on the television, there's only one thing I want to see: the five-day forecast!
|That's a nice five-day forecast!|
Sometimes they'll even get up there, talk about a few things, point at a few other things, not give the five-day forecast, then have the gall to say something like, "I'll be back in a few minutes with the five-day forecast."
The weather-person should never appear on the screen without giving the five-day forecast! They should start with the five-day forecast, finish with the five-day forecast, and do the five-day forecast in the middle! All we really want is the five-day forecast! If only there was some way we could make them go straight to the five-day forecast!
Wait. What's that? You say there's an app on my phone? You say I can just click on an icon and get the five-day forecast any time I want it? I can even look up the five-day forecast for Des Moines if I want? Wow!
Guess what weather-person? You've just become obsolete.
