It’s a matter of a style. A-Channel TV station in Ottawa does not use green screen for the weather. They do it in few different ways through the show. Personality is very important, so the weather guy is on the screen as much as possible. He may be on full screen occasionally covered by the numbers, or he may share the screen with the numbers half-and-half, or he may stand by the plasma screen with computer generated maps and talk. They use green screen for other things, but no longer for the weather.
