$$: Local weathermen make in the low six figures; those on national morning television can earn millions and reap commercial benefits as well.

The upside: Opportunity to scare people when an inch of snow is coming.
The downside: People actually blame you for bad weather.
The dark side: When a true natural disaster pops up, they send Anderson Cooper!
