    Why is Francis Sky’s senior weather presenter??

    Personally I cant stand him. Lisa is soooo much better! The other weather girls are great to, Steph I think is one of them??

    I wish SKy News Australia had their own weather team.

    Quite so….

    He is also one of the few forecasters able to speak ‘off the cuff’ and not, unlike many of his colleagues, be clearly reliant on lofted ‘idiot boards’.

    IMO, Jo Wheeler is another whose forecasting experience shines through.

    The whole TV forecasting business has fast become the natural home of the pouting bimbo.

    Worst I’ve seen is the Central TV ‘service’.

    Their bulletin lasts around 12 seconds, shared on rota by 2 gormless overdressed women, and scripted by some Monty Pythonesque writers.

    “Do take care if you go out”,”From the word go”,”Dry, but we could have some rain”….et al……

    Cheers

    francis he makes me laugh when he does the weather, he dont beat around the bush he just uses whatever words comes in his mind not like these others weather ppl who use complicated words to decribe whats happening, he just says it straight down the line

    I wish he’d do something with his hair.

    He makes me laugh because its obviously not scripted and its like he has just seen the weather for the first time when he gives the forecast.

    I get the feeling that he dosent like employing pretty woman for the sake of pretty women and just wants good weather people.

    I cant find any juicy dirt on the guy which is annoying

    francis is quite mad, talk about blinding you with science. i think he may be the only post-modern weather presenter in existence, seemingly very aware it’s all bollocks.

    i don’t have any gossip i’m afraid. i’m sure he would respond to an e-mail if you make it the slightest bit interesting.

    as far as the rest go, lucy has nice legs, life for lisa is one long shampoo advert, steph is smiley-smiley, and denise has a promising career in children’s telly.

    Francis is just an amazing Weather presenter. Top notch guy.

    He is very informal which is what I admire about him. Rather than reading straight off the stripts and smiling and arse licking for the camera like the BBC does, he actually presents the weather in a way that is personal as if he is your real life friend talking to you. In a clear, concise manner too. Perfect!

    ALL WEATHER PRESENTERS need to be like him!

    He is unbeatable, a true gem, Sky News is so cool to watch with Francis! B)

    I think that must have been the forecast when he read out, literally from a piece of paper, a list of the roads in Scotland closed due to flooding. I imagine it must have been meaningless to anyone coming in halfway through.

    I hadn’t seen the earlier comments (from 2005) about Francis until today. I couldn’t agree more with the favourable comments about him. His original, inventive style and his fascinating use of language can make the most tedious forecast seem interesting.

    I think a big problem with Sky is they are obsessed with ensuring most of their weather presenters are female. Francis himself might be to blame for that because I think he has a say on who get’s recruited, who knows. I’m not gay or anything, but it might be a refreshing change if they thought about hiring a bloke next time round. Just look at the BBC, they have a fair balance of male and female weather presenters, and all of them are very comfortable and relaxed when presenting the weather. Sky might want to take a hint from their rivals, or if they can’t be bothered just nick one or two from the beeb as they did with Isobel.
