Other Matters: Language

Has anyone else noticed that radio and TV weather people report or predict “warm temperatures” or “cold temperatures.” Temperatures are not warm or cold. Air is warm or cold. Temperatures are high or low, or somewhere in between. Please, weather people.

And another thing, as Andy Rooney would say: Gene Lees, refusing to submit to the PC usage “weatherpersons,” called them “weatherthings.” Boy, do I miss him.
