34 Years of Forecasts, Farewell to Tom Clark

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It's a story 34 years in the making.

The day is somewhat surreal and very bittersweet, as Mike Stevens and many of the Newswatch 16 team bids so long to everybody's favorite weatherman, Tom Clark.

    I agree with a previous poster. Channel 16 didn’t do much for Tom’s farewell. He gave them 34 years and they gave him a cheesy 5 minutes in the backyard. I felt embarrassed for him. Things will only get better for you now Tom. Have fun!

    I am new to the area…having only been here twelve years, not a native…but I will miss Tom Clark’s infamous line….”It’s going to be good travel weather.” Blessings to you and your family, Tom, as you embark on this new chapter of your life! May each day of your retirement be blessed with love, happiness, family, good friends, good health, and of course…good traveling weather! So long…never good-bye!

    I particularly liked the story you related about a Grateful Dead concert in RFK w/ Noreen. I always appreciated your forecasts. You know what they say about “rolling stones”…..I’m sure you have a bunch of plans. Good Luck.

    I was in one of those classes Mr Clark visited back in the late 80s. It was a fun and educational experience. Thanks for keeping us informed all these years!

    Tom Clark,
    I’ve watched the weather with you on since I was 10 years old. Yes, you’ve made mistakes that effected schedules and plans. But, on the whole you’ve been good. Hate to see you go, you’re like family.
    Enjoy your retirement!

    Thank you Mr. Clark for your service to us. For always reminding us, be it a blizzard, flood, or whatever came, there would be a tomorrow with sunshine. You got at lot of forecasts correct, and missed a few. Still the greatest joy you brought , was your Christmas Eve forecast at 11pm, and your tracking of Santa. being an old man, it delighted me, that you chose to do that, and it always made me smile. I was saddened when it was not done this year. I always hoped the station would have you sit down with a group of children, and recite “The Night Before Christmas” to them.
