Cleveland meteorologist does forecast without saying heat

Mark Johnson upset over Miami Heat championship

CLEVELAND - Cleveland ABC affiliate meteorologist Mark Johnson tried to do the weather Friday morning without mentioning the word heat.

Johnson was upset that the Heat beat the Spurs in Game 7 to win the NBA finals and his forecast was delayed until after midnight.

Non-hot, tepid, mild – those a are just a few of terms Johnson used. Although the heat slipped in a few times, he tried hard.

“I’m tracking stuff – How do I put this? No, I can’t say that.  I’ll use sultriness,” he said.

Since the weather is warming up in northeast Ohio, Johnson ran out of words. He just used “Ninja Turtles” to describe the heat instead.
