For Some Reason, Lots Of Meteorologists Are Wearing The Same Dress
When you're a meteorologist, you need to have four things:
1. Knowledge about your craft 2. A strong on-air presence 3. The ability to convey information in a digestible and friendly manner 4. Financial sense
You don't know when the next major storm will hit, which could lead to you seeing days or weeks at a time without receiving a sweet, sweet storm paycheck (meteorologists get paid by the storm, correct?).
This means finding presentable clothes on a budget becomes one of your most important tasks. You need to look "TV fancy" on-air and can't drop a fortune on a wardrobe to make that happen.
Let's be real for a second. The only weatherperson who can afford to throw money around like Hurricane Irene inside of a Chase Bank is Al Roker, and right now, he looks like a deflated weather balloon fell on top of some chicken bones.
This is probably why every local female meteorologist ever wears the same $22.99 dress from Amazon.
I bought today's dress on Amazon for $23! Someone posted a link to it on our broadcast meteorologist group Facebook page... Posted by Meteorologist Jennifer Myers on Saturday, November 21, 2015

I bought today's dress on Amazon for $23! Someone posted a link to it on our broadcast meteorologist group Facebook page and it got REALLY popular. More that 50 of us purchased the dress, so if you travel and watch the news, you might see something familiar... you can find Jenny and me both in the collage.
So, aspiring weather ladies of tomorrow, this is the easiest case of "dress for the job you want" you will ever find. Literally, just wear that.
