Charles Barkley hijacks a local weather report

Once in a while, celebrities and athletes will use local weather reports as strange, semi-comical promotional tools. TheWeek.com has a compilation right here, and there are many more examples beyond that breakdown. 

But Charles Barkley doesn't let real meteorologists prepare. Instead, Barkley crashed the weather report on the 11 p.m. news on a Phoenix ABC affiliate Sunday night without notice. He spends a little too much time bantering and stands in the way of poor Saturday on the seven-day forecast, but we've seen worse. At least Chuck's an entertaining dude, regardless of what he's doing.
