Russia's state-controlled press is all-in on Syrian intervention — even its weather forecasters.By Zach Toombs | October 5, 2015
Russia has made more than 100 bombing runs over Syria. And a forecaster for Russian state TV says the weather is great for it.
"Now back to one of the biggest stories of the week," a Rossiya 24 forecaster said. "Russian air operations in Syria are continuing. And experts say the weather conditions are excellent for it. October in Syria is a great month for flying. The average wind speed is 2.4 meters per second with strong gusts just once in the month, and it only rains once every 10 days."
