Wannabe weather girl amasses huge following for her daily 30-second forecast videos
Nev G DeMarni has amassed thousands of followers for her short and to-the-point reports that she began posting after losing her job as a council housing officer
An amateur weather girl has garnered a lot of attention on social media by recording her own DIY forecasts and then broadcasting them on Facebook. Nev G DeMarni has amassed thousands of followers due to her short and to-the-point reports post losing her job as a council housing officer. The 42-year-old from Essex dresses up in an outfit to suit the day's weather while delivering her 30-second forecast from her back garden.
Nev G DeMarni from Chigwell in Essex used to be a former council housing officer and wakes up at 4 am in order to look over the Met Office's website for information before she goes live around 9 am every day.
According to the Evening Standard, she said, "I just want to nail today, tonight and tomorrow in 30 seconds or less, no-one else does that. People are busy and I don’t want to waste their time".
"I don’t use big technical or meteorological words that no-one can understand and I love being in front of the camera. I’m obsessed with the weather like most British people," she continued. DeMarni attended the Barnet College with Spice Girl Emma Bunton and revealed that she appeared on Vanessa Feltz's breakfast show on BBC London. She is hopeful that the internet platform will secure her a permanent TV role.
DeMarni went on to add, "I dress for the seasons so I was in my sheepskin standing out in the snow in February as well. The odd person says nasty stuff about my outfits but I don’t respond to them. I remember watching TV as a little girl and feeling so sorry for Michael Fish when everyone gave him a hard time when he got the 1987 hurricane wrong".
She also recently revealed that she is concerned about her forthcoming summer holidays as many people now rely on her short and prompt broadcasts. She admitted that she may have to provide her fans with weather updates from the beach. "I have a lot of people relying on me now, so I’m worried to go on holiday. I’ll just have to do it from the beach wherever I am," DeMarni shared.
