#IdeaMonth Day 17: Spice Up The Weather

The Daily Show and its kin have shown us that combining serious news and issues with comedy is an effective delivery method for a younger, more irreverent, educated, and open-minded audience. It's a delicious way to spice up otherwise boring or convoluted content.

Which is why I'd like to see it done with weather. Instead of Weatherperson X standing in front of a green screen, stating a few choice numbers, and then throwing it back to the anchors, I think the weather should be expanded, teased, and savored.

Have a panel of people who have no weather expertise, but have strong opinions about it. Surround an actual climatologist (who offers actual weather information) with this hilarity and nonsense. We might enjoy the weather and, perhaps, learn a thing or two while we're at it.
