The 2019 Hudson Valley Weather Calendar, presented by the Hope for Youth Foundation and containing meteorologist Jim Witt’s long range forecasts, is on sale now at popular locations through out the Hudson Valley.
Witt has formulated a complex system that relies on historic weather patterns in order to predict what the weather will be like years, even decades, ahead. He is especially interested in identifying dates for major weather events like hurricanes and Nor’easters. The precision of his forecasts over the past 40 years has made Witt a successful, charismatic and eerily accurate weather prophet. Witt is also a former high school science teacher.
Proceeds from the calendar sales go to help children with life-threatening illnesses and children with physical and mental challenges. In addition, the Hope for Youth Foundation gives eight scholarships to deserving graduating high school seniors. Recent beneficiaries have included 32 worthwhile regional children’s organizations such as Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley, Gilda’s Club, Camp Horizons Inc., Friends of Karen, Children’s Hospital Fund at Westchester County Medical Center, and Hillside Food Outreach.
“Professional meteorologists and amateur weather enthusiasts alike are interested in the predictions for 2019 and beyond. On one hand the calendar allows me to use my passion for weather to generate funds for kids who face life’s challenges and on the other hand, the forecasts can help local and state government as well as everyday folks to be prepared for future adverse weather,” said Witt.
Calendars are for sale at his public appearances and at participating retail locations for $8.00. They are also available for $12.00 by mail. Sponsoring businesses can also order bulk shipments for $6.00 each.
