wes hohensteinHi, I’m Chief Meteorologist Wes Hohenstein and welcome to the 3-Degree Guarantee!  Every night during our 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts, the North Carolina News Storm Team shows you how accurate our forecast was from the day before.

If we get the forecast correct within 3 degrees (plus or minus), we donate $50 to a charity – and our friends at Allen Kelly & Co. match that donation.  At the end of the month we donate it to our selected charity in the form of one of those giant checks you see on TV!

If you have a charity you would like us to consider, we only ask that the charity be in good standing and be designated a 401(3)c non-profit by the IRS. Please email your nominations to me at wes@wncn.com.

This month’s charity: Caring House
