Windy today, with squally showers and some brighter spells. Strong to gale SW’ly winds veering W’ly.

Radioed weather is very useful, of course, and so is Webbed weather, but there's nothing like the weather ear on a newspaper.

Appropos of nothing, I add only that some people like weather systems, some people are weather systems--and, sometimes (not often) people actually like people who are weather systems. Needless to say, they often get caught in sudden storms and are seldom dressed properly.
