Cleveland meteorologist avoids using the word ‘heat’ in forecast

Following the Miami Heat’s Game 7 win in the NBA Finals over the San Antonio Spurs, a meteorologist, Mark Johnson, for WEWS-TV out of Cleveland, tried to do an entire forecast Friday without saying the word “heat.”

Just in case you thought Cleveland residents weren’t still bitter about LeBron James’s departure to the Heat three years ago, this forecast might show otherwise. Johnson called it a “public service” in avoiding the word “heat.”

All in good fun or is there some serious snark behind it? See how well, or not, the meteorologist handles avoiding the taboo word.
