Then come the weather girls, but they're not on screen merely to decorate it and giggle their way through the day's high and low temperatures in various parts of Mother Russia. They are real meteorologists, who seriously discuss weather conditions and problems. And unlike their U.S. counterparts, male or female, they aren't ever razzed by the gang at the anchor desk.
