RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

JENNIFER MCDERMED: Fifty is the current temperature right now in Winona. Ooh, that's funky.

MARTIN: Fox 9 in Minneapolis had a technical glitch during their weather forecast. Meteorologist Jennifer McDermed started multiplying across the screen. Her image grew and lagged behind her, creating a trippy time-warp look.

MCDERMED: Do you guys want one Jennifer or two Jennifers or three?

MARTIN: Whatever choice gets us sunny weather. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
