Is David Lynch reviving his daily weather report?

Words by Kate Streader

The beloved filmmaker returned with his first weather report in ten years yesterday.

It’s been a decade since David Lynch last gave us a weather update from sunny Los Angeles as part of his daily weather report for radio station Indie 103.1, but it appears he’s dabbling with meteorology once again.

In the mid-2000s, the renowned filmmaker began giving brief weather reports for the LA radio station as well as posting accompanying short videos in which he simply gives a weather update for LA.

Sitting in a nondescript office cubicle, the segments see Lynch describe the weather – usually depicting “blue skies” and “golden sunshine” – in clips usually lasting around 20-30 seconds.

The strange series even saw him invite longtime collaborator Laura Dern to join him for one edition in which she silently sat beside him holding up a piece of paper with the date on it.

After hanging up his weatherman hat ten years ago, Lynch arbitrarily returned with a weather report yesterday which he posted on his new YouTube account and shared as a Tweet.

Appearing to be filmed in the same office cubicle as the original weather reports, this may very well signal the return of his daily weather updates.
