You've seen it. [[TruthInTelevision Possibly even in real life]]. There's a man, or a ([[{{Fanservice}} generally attractive]]) woman, standing in front of a GreenScreen, telling you what the weather will be like just before the NewsBroadcast ends. Characters will check this if they're going camping, fishing, or what have you.

If the weather is incorrect, it is generally played for laughs, either with a DisproportionateRetribution episode, or with the characters insisting to go fishing when it's pouring buckets anyway. You may even get [[CloudCuckooLander someone]] insisting that it is such a beautiful day.

If the weather is correct, chances are that the weather is horrible (occasionally cue "[[TemptingFate Oh, like he's ever right]].") or that this signals the end of the episode/movie/book. Blue skies, lovely weather predicted and it's correct? Time for [[BittersweetEnding your]] [[HappilyEverAfter happy]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding ending]].

[[NamesTheSame Not to be confused with]] the jazz fusion band of the same name.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', a five-episode arc starts when Ketsuno Ana's impeccable weather predictions start being consistently dead-wrong.
* The manga ''Otenki Onee-san'' (titled ''Weather Report Girl'' for Western releases) was about Keiko Nakadai, an ambitious femme fatale who gets a job standing in for the normal weather girl Michiko Kawai, and proceeds to raise eyebrows (and her station's ratings) by flashing and flirting with the audience. HilarityEnsues as Michiko starts a prank war with Keiko in order to get her job back. It was popular enough to get an OVA and live-action film version.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''[[WesternAnimation/YinYangYo Re: Yin Yang Who?]]'' has it in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5626292/11 Chapter Eleven]] for {{Filler}}.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''The Weather Man'' is a movie about a Chicago TV weatherman who is so resented by people that they throw food and drinks at him. [[NeverTrustATrailer When he takes up archery and starts carrying a bow with him, people stop throwing stuff at him]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* One Kenny Everett sketch had Kenny as an irate TV viewer who attacked a weatherman for forecasting bad weather.
* ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'':
** Parodied with the man in front of the green screen (usually Colin) having no idea what's being shown behind him, and has to guess based on other people's reactions.
** Also a part of the Weird Newsanchor game, where one of the performers (usually Ryan) have to present the weather in an unusual style. An unusual one can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_NAhjmnezk here]]
* ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' has the eponymous pair's dad as a weatherman. He's highly inaccurate (but aren't the ''studios'' supposed to find out the weather correctly?), such as the episode where he predicted nothing but clear skies, only for a massive storm to develop a short time later.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* You see (or rather, hear) several of these in ''VideoGame/Persona4'', and it's important to keep track of the weather - when someone is trapped in the TV world, you only have until the next foggy day to save them (otherwise they're killed and you get a NonstandardGameOver). The weather report is always accurate, because if it were inaccurate you'd have no way to know how much time you have left. Its accuracy is lampshaded early on, when Nanako wonders if the weather forecaster actually ''controls'' the weather. In ''Golden'', [[spoiler:in the best ending, Marie (who ''literally'' controls the weather) gets the weather-report job.]]
* In a few of the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games, you can check the weather forecast on TV to see what the weather for the next day will be like.
* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', being a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Harvest Moon'', has a weather channel that tells you what the next day's weather will be like. It also reminds you of upcoming events like the Egg Festival (which, oddly enough, never seem to get rained out).

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Two of WebVideo/ThomasSanders' Website/{{Vine}}s are parodies of this featuring ''Series/{{Today}}'''s Al Roker; one is a straight-up parody of the Ollie Williams weather forecast from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
* WebVideo/{{Hadriex}} does one in his [[VideoReviewShow review]] or [[VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic Heroes 3]]. Apparently Erathian weather reports [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xetp4WsUD6Q&index=1&list=UU3Q13RAmFVfDkYOWnnqFM2A#t=3m15s sound pretty silly]].
* Played with in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' -- an episode typically includes the announcement "And now the weather", followed by a piece of music that has nothing whatsoever to do with the weather.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' has an episode in which all the weather forecasters predict the weather incorrectly, and are run out of town. Then Timmy's mom becomes the weather forecaster, so Timmy wishes that no matter what she predicts, it will come true. HilarityEnsues.
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' had Nancy who was blatantly only hired because she was gorgeous. The closest thing they actually had as far as equipment to predict the weather was one fax machine. Eventually they replace her with an actual weather expert because "It turns out people actually ''want'' to know the weather."
