RTE star Nuala Carey has said that many people "forget" weather presenters aren't just pretty faces.

The 37-year-old has been at the helm of Irish weather presenting for the last 10 years, but said that there's more to her than her wardrobe.

And she said she's unhappy with the way her profession is depicted in film.

"I think sometimes movies have stereotypes of weathergirls which maybe focus on how the presenter looks and kind of forget the fact that we have a great education," she told the current issue of Woman's Way. "Sure, everybody takes pride in their appearance.."

Nuala, muich like her meteorologist colleague Jean Byrne, has made quite the mark on the Irish style scene, but she's still a high street girl at heart when it comes to bagging a bargain.
