A Few Questions For NBC Bay Area's Chief Weather Guru Jeff Ranieri

Jeff Ranieri Jeff Ranieri is the NBC Bay Area chief meteorologist.


**************************


First off, anything we should about you that we don't know? I'm completely obsessed with the SF fog and marine layer. It never gets old.


You have quite a following--what do you attribute it to? I'm just myself...What you see is what you get. Being "real" is the only way to be  on television.


Why is the weather so important?--I've always thought we give it way too much attention. We're all impacted by the weather every minute of the day. Even when it's Summer in the Bay Area with sunny skies seven days a week, there's a dynamic weather story to tell our viewers. You could argue we have some of the most unique microclimates in a confined zone that is unlike anywhere else in the world. It matters.


What's a cool day for you, off the air? Making breakfast with an amazing cup of coffee and checking out what's in the paper, (yes, we still get it delivered at home!) Then, heading outside to enjoy one of the many incredible options across the Bay Area. Wine country or the Coast would probably be 2 of my favorite options. Finally, ending the night back in the kitchen, (love to cook), and making dinner with my family.


OK, a biggie: What are you having for dinner tonight? In n-Out!! Double-- double with grilled onions, fries--animal style.

  1. Question for Ranieri: what happens if the coffee isn't "amazing?" Or options aren't "incredible?" Boy, Ranieri may be real but his hypey schitick here sounds like it came out of KNTV marketing. Jeff, do get and talk real, ok?

  5. When you make real grown up money you can afford better coffee and beer.

    Philz coffee is the best I have tasted.

  6. It's hard to reconcile someone who believes in keeping it real and dishes out so many superlatives in such a short span.
