A beautiful woman can change a rather mundane weather prediction into a fascinating topic. Even when the forecast is for rain or depressing conditions, an attractive meteorologist can make the prediction look like a sunny day.
Scientists are now equipped with sophisticated measuring devices and instruments that feed data into a supercomputer for analysis. A computer model is created using current atmospheric conditions and physics equations that predict how the weather changes over time. Short-term forecasting depends on precipitation, temperature, clouds, wind, and pressure. Long-term climate prediction also depends upon ocean currents, sea ice, ground and sea temperatures, and atmospheric pollution.
However, even with these technologically advanced methods, weather forecasting is still an inexact science. So, if the weather prediction is occasionally wrong (frequently in some areas), who cares when a gorgeous woman delivers it with a radiant smile?
Here are the twenty of the most attractive weather girls on TV. These meteorologists make the interminable wait through all the political and social news until the weather forecast segment (almost always aired at the end of the program), worthwhile for viewers!
20 Yanet Garcia, Televisa Monterrey News
If the number of Instagram followers is any indication, Yanet Garcia’s over 7 million followers make her the most recognizable name and face on our list of attractive weather girls.
