Feeling under the weather

I'm not entirely sure how I ended up on the home page of the Chicago Sun-Times, but having done so, I discovered that the weather there today is 'grumpy'.  Was that determined by meteorologists or psychologists?

The weather is reported to have had 'a shower early this morning' (damned paparazzi...) and will buck-up to become 'Mostly sunny and nice' tomorrow. 'Nice'? Highly objective, eh?

It's easy to mock folksy reporting of everyday minutiae, but remember: this is an opinion-forming source of information for millions of people: if it dumbs the weather down to 'grumpy', how is it interpreting (as opposed to simply conveying) more complex issues?
