To me it doesn't seem that some of the weather people are as knowledgeable about the weather as others. Are all or most tv weather people meteorologists :?:

Mr. B., the forecasters on TV are a combination of meteorologists and journalists. Some the of meteorologists have four year degrees, many others have a Mississippi State degree which isn't into as much heavy physics and math. There is a wide difference in the credentials!

The tv weather people in my town are a combination of meteorologists and journalists. The main guy is a meteorologist but the others are pretty good too.

I see some of the people where I live have the AMS seal on their program. Does that make them a meteorologist? I would think so.

Boston has some good weather people. I usually watch the morning news - Good Morning America show.
