EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — This was not in the forecast.

A weather report turned glitchy Tuesday night for a Minneapolis-area meteorologist, whose image began to multiply while she was giving a weather report.

Jennifer McDermed, of KMSP-TV, was giving her normal report during the station’s 9 p.m. telecast when things got, well, a little “funky.”

A glitch caused McDermed to multiply as she walked across the screen, which was enhanced by the bright yellow dress she was wearing.

“Oooh, that is funky! What is going on?” McDermed asked as she appeared in duplicate, at one point walking across the screen with duplicates of herself in tow. “I don’t really know what’s going on!”

McDermed, a Kansas native who received her bachelor’s degree in meteorology from St. Louis University in 2013, certainly had never had an experience like this.

“It gave me a headache! Too many of me,” McDermed giggled on the air. “I can’t even handle myself, let alone 10 of me.”

McDermed’s colleagues were equally caught off guard.

“Whatever button you pushed, don’t do it again,” KMSP anchor Randy Meier said at the end of McDermed’s report.
