"Minus 8 degress below zero"

This morning a local television weather man said that the temperature a week ago had been a "minus 8 degrees below zero." I think he meant a "minus 8 degrees" or "8 degrees below zero." A "minus 8 degrees below zero" would be a plus 8 degrees, wouldn't it? I know it is not a big mistake and we all know what he meant but it would have bothered me all day it I had not gotten this off my chest.
