AccuWeather’s Joe Bastardi surprises many with his resignation
He had been with AccuWeather for 32 years, helping to create the company that supplies radio and TV stations with weather forecasts and updates. Meteorologist Bastardi was AccuWeather’s top long-range forecaster and was regularly seen handling hurricane predictions. Now he has tendered his resignation, effective immediately. The company simply says that “Joe Bastardi is no longer with AccuWeather. You won’t see more forecasts posted by him.” Bastardi was known for his videos and forecasts on the pay-subscription “AccuWeather Pro” site. He was also known for his disbelief of the theories of global warming.
