John Kettley is a freelance weatherman.

He used to work for the Met Office, and presents weather forecasts for the BBC on Radio Five Live.

His status as a cult figure was confirmed in 1988 when a band called A Tribe of Toffs released the song "John Kettley is a Weatherman", which also namechecked other TV weather presenters of the day including Michael Fish, Bernard Davey, Bill Giles, Ian McCaskill and Wincey Willis. The single reached number 21 in the UK Singles Chart.
