Special Olympics Illinois to receive over 1000 dollars from 3 Degree Guarantee


Decatur- March has come to an end and this month Special Olympics Illinois was the charity selected for Chief Meteorologist JC Fultz's 3 Degree Guarantee. JC and the weather team got 21 out of 23 days correct for an accuracy of 91%, meaning SOIL will receive $1,050 dollars! Since the start of the program WAND and our partner IBEW Local 146 has donated over $18,000 thousand dollars to local charities! 

If you would like to nominate your charity you can email JC at jcfultz@wandtv.com or find him on facebook or twitter. A committee will meet once every 6 month to choose the next 6 months recipients. 

Here is a little more about how it works:

The concept is simple. Five days a week on WAND News at 10,  Chief Meteorologist J.C. Fultz will give you his 3-Degree Guarantee. He guarantees the next day's high temperature will be within three degrees of what he predicted.

The next day on WAND News at 6, J.C. will compare his forecast with the day's actual high temperature.

Each day J.C. gets it right, WAND and the IBEW will donate to a "charity of the month." WAND presents the money at the end of each month to the charity. It's WAND's way of giving back to the community while holding ourselves to the high standard and accuracy viewers have come to expect of WAND-TV.  

The numbers don't lie; you can keep track for yourself on this page. While others may follow WAND by doing similar promotions, JC's forecasts continue to live up to the promise of being the most accurate in central Illinois (Decatur-Springfield-Champaign area). Everybody wins with JC's 3 Degree Guarantee.
