Hall of Fame Members

Each Groundhog Day, The Weather Discovery Center honors individuals who have advanced the knowledge of weather science, climatology, and meteorology.

As Hall of Fame members, they help to represent and advance the mission of the Weather Discovery Center, which is to help visitors explore and understand the science behind weather phenomena.

2013 Inductee: Jim Cantore
The Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center is pleased to announce its latest Hall of Fame inductee for 2013. Jim Cantore joined us in Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day - February 2 at 1pm - in the Weather Discovery Center lobby for the official announcement and ceremony.

One of the most recognized and animated meteorologists around, The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore can usually be found delivering live coverage in the middle of an ice storm, chasing tornadoes or reporting from the eye of a category 5 hurricane. A native of White River Junction, VT, Cantore also appears regularly on various news programs to explain weather phenomena. Cantore's passion for the outdoors is equally evident in his leisure activities. He enjoys skiing, softball, golf, landscaping and spending time with his two children. Following the induction ceremony, Cantore greeted visitors to the Weather Center from 2-3pm. Click here for a detailed biography of Jim.
