Overdosing on the 50s and partly cloudy

Jason Samenow @ 1:57 AM

This November weekend will feature characteristic November weather: temperatures in the low to mid 50s under a mix of clouds and sun. Unless you happen to be a weatherman on heroin, the weather shouldn't catch you with your pants down...


Forecast Confidence: HighIncreasing afternoon clouds, crisp. Mostly sunny skies this morning will be followed by considerable cloudiness this afternoon. Temperatures should rise from the 30s early in the morning into the low 50s by mid afternoon. The cloudiness should break up a bit towards dusk, making for a nice sunset. Overnight, a few clouds will likely stick around, possibly obscuring parts of the sky for the leonid meteor shower. Lows should range from 32-37 (suburbs-city).

Forecast Confidence: HighPartly cloudy, a bit brisk. Cool high pressure building in from the west and the resulting flow from the northwest will keep temperatures seasonably cool. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with highs once again in the low 50s.

Lose Your Clothes, Lose Your Job

The Associated Press reports: "A WSLS-TV meteorologist was fired because his nude photo was posted on the Internet." The sentence is referring to admitted heroin user Jamey Singleton of the NBC affiliate in Roanoke, Virginia. While the station failed to fire Singleton for his past drug abuse (although his WSLS colleague, meteorologist Marc Lamarre, had been fired earlier in the year after overdosing on heroin), the appearance of Singleton's nude photo on MySpace was the straw the broke the camel's back. Sounds like this Roanoke affiliate may need to review its hiring practices...
