NBC3’s Chief Meteorologist Wayne Mahar will retire in December. He announced earlier this year that he would part ways with the station after a decorated, decades-long career in television news.
This week he was recognized by Congressman John Katko (NY-24) who represents the Syracuse-area, where Mahar forecasted.
Katko called Mahar one of “the most recognizable and trusted forecasters in Central New York.”
He had a 36-year career in meteorology, and founded a company called Precision Weather Service. That’s a private weather consulting firm that builds forecasts for major events – including the Super Bowl.
NBC3 is seen in Cayuga, Seneca, and Wayne counties.
