On one of our colder mornings, I checked three of our local TV morning shows to find the local temperature. Some of us old codgers like to know if we need a hat or jacket or both to make the trek out to the curb to retrieve the local newspapers. Not one of these meteorological prognosticators told me what the present degree of local frigidity was!
All of them told me what the high for the day was expected to be, and even what temperatures were expected for the next several days, but no word at all on how cold it was right then. Perhaps if they heard a complaint they would include this information in their daily presentations. Any chance?
I also get a bit tired of the redundant references to "8 a.m. in the morning" or "3 p.m. in the afternoon" as well as the ambiguities "12 a.m." and "12 p.m." instead of noon and midnight.
