JACKSONVLLE, Fla. – George Winterling was more than just a local weatherman. He was a pioneer in the television broadcasting industry and the field of weather forecasting.
Our beloved George passed away Wednesday at the age of 91. He spent 47 years warning the residents of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia about dangerous weather headed our way and become a local institution. He retired from WJXT in 2009.
