Entertainer is fine for this job. In fact it would be an improvement. It's amusing that, these days, a real meteorologist is required to read the weather on TV. The boffin means the weather segment is 90% too long, but then again, I guess they need to fill it with something. Fortunately mute and Mr DVR takes care of that.
(It fascinates me that in comparison, the domestic BBC News can give a better weather forecast for the entire British Isles in less than 90 seconds.)
