The following YouTube video is about to go viral on the Internet.
Fox 10’s weatherman Cory McCloskey didn’t skip a beat when his weather map went berserk showing four-digit temperatures during a TV weather report.
His ad-libbed dialog was hilarious.
“Most of the Phoenix, Arizona region is a comfortable 60 degrees, but, stay away from Cave Creek and its 2,960 degree heat.”
McCloskey continued, “yeah, Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, they don’t look good either. And frankly, Wickenburg is a total loss. Again, I’m not your dad, but I would get out while you still can. Steel boils at about that temperature!”

Mitt Romney told supporters that he has decided to skip a 2016 presidential race, putting an end to weeks of serious consideration about a third try for the White House.
Romney was quoted as saying, "after putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I've decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee."
The report say several top donors have flocked to Jeb Bush, who appeals to the same center-right establishment wing of the Republican Party as Romney.
Potential rivals such as Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, who supported Romney in 2012, were openly dismissive about another Romney race and said a fresh face is needed.
Bill Belichick called a press conference on Saturday to explain the absence of air in his team’s footballs using the power of science, or something.
That’s when Belichick said, “I’m not a scientist” then went on to lecture us about equilibrium , atmospheric pressure and psi readings while trying to explain the reason why the Patriots game balls were under-inflated. He did not explain why the Colts balls were not underinflaated.
Bill Nye (Science Guy) didn’t buy it saying it “didn’t make sense.”
The company who make the NFL’s footballs, Wilson, chose different words to describe Belichick’s reasoning. In an interview with Boston.com, Wilson representative Jim Jenkins was succinct in his summation of Belichick’s press conference.
“That’s BS. That’s BS, man.”
Both Jenkins and Wilson’s director of experiential marketing Molly Wallace didn’t go so far as accuse New England of tampering, but made it clear that when their products are sent out, they’re game ready.
“All we know is what we can control is when it leaves the factory it’s within an NFL spec, within the PSI of 12 1/2 to 13 1/2 pounds of pressure for every single NFL team.”
Sure sounds like the New England Patriots were caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
