Fish ensured lasting noterity due to an often misquoted forecast relating to the Great Storm on the night of the October 15 1987 when he said "Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way...well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't!". In fact, Fish's comment about the hurricane referred to Florida and a news story about destruction in the Caribbean, but because the clip was shown out of context, Fish was unfairly ridiculed although he had warned of high winds for the UK, warning viewers to "batten down the hatches", although the storm that actually occurred was far stronger than predicted (albeit, technically, not a hurricane).

A former naval man, Ron fronted the weather for Southern (1980 - 1981) and went on to become one of the most popular presenters on TVS in the South East. A placid, yet charismatic TV natural, Ron would often mention in forecasts his daytime visits to schools across Kent, East Sussex and Essex where he would talk to the young ones about, well what else, the weather.

According to the TVS book 'Coast To Coast', Ron was the first television weatherman in the UK to use the term 'celsius'. It was also Ron who coined the phrase 'chill factor' apparently.

During the summer he would often present forecasts well away from the studios, either at the beach or famous landmarks like Leeds Castle. During the early years of TVS he would present forecasts from his trusty 'toblerone' - a triangular shaped revolving board. In 1987 Ron was given the chromakey, high-tech treatment.

On 'Meridian Tonight' he would often present forecasts from the comfy seated area used more often for interviews. Like Brucie or Barrymore he had his own set phrases - 'bronzy, bronzy' for the summer months, while in the depths of winter viewers would be warned to 'throw another blanket on the bed'. For the summer equinox he would melancholically comment 'downhill all the way to Christmas'. Ron is now retired from TV.
