Clue/Question:  This will spruce up a press agent’s wardrobe.

(Pretty good clue words, nice scrambling of the answer letters, and a decent little pun.  Today’s cartoon also kind of reminds me of the days when local TV weathermen used to wear loud, plaid, sports-jackets.  This was back in the day before they were all “meteorologists”.  Weather forecasting was much less of a science in those days, so the weather-people had to have a good sense of humor, as they were part newsman and part entertainer.  Show me the barometric pressure! The crazy clothes also helped them stand apart from the serious anchormen, who gave us the more factual, hard news.  Things sure seemed simpler in those days.  Be good, do good, friends!)   — YUR

    In order to become a meteorologist the person must graduate from an accredited meteorological school. Some weather forecasters are climitologist meaning they took training usually at the station they work at. Have fun wordsmiths.
