Weather Girls is a group of Japanese idols from Taiwan. Originally, the group was formed in 2010 and acted as weather forecasters on television and the internet for Taiwan and the United States. After attracting attention in Japan, seven of its members, one for each day of the week, were selected to debut as an idol group in Japan in late 2012. They are the first Taiwanese girl group to come to Japan.
In Japan, the group is under Pony Canyon and is managed by Ritz Productions. Jeff Miyahara is the producer of the group. After its debut, the group has continuously performed in all regions. Its members have also starred in dramas, hosted television shows and sung television theme songs. So far, the group has released, inter alia, six Japanese singles and one Japanese album.
In late 2013, the group also debuted as a musical group in Taiwan. In its homeland, the group is under FEMC and is managed by L Motion Entertainment. Its producer is Bryan Chen. Like in Japan, the members of the group have starred in motion pictures, hosted television shows and sung sports theme songs. As yet, the group has issued one Mandarin album amongst other things.
The incumbent members of the group are Hijon for Monday, Ria for Wednesday, Mia for Thursday, Mini for Friday, Yumi for Saturday and NueNue for Sunday. Former Wednesday Girl Dara vacated her membership in late 2013 and her post was later filled by Ria. Former Tuesday Girl Esse vacated her membership in late 2014 and her post has since been vacant.
The Weather Girls, also known as Two Tons o' Fun (especially during the early portion of their career), was composed of singers Izora Armstead and Martha Wash. The duo charted several dance hits over the course of its career, with its peak in popularity having occurred in 1982, when the group released the hit song "It's Raining Men."
The rights to the name "The Weather Girls" are currently held by Dynelle Rhodes, the daughter of founding Weather Girl, Izora Armstead. Rhodes does not currently have a singing partner.
