(The New York Times) – Willard Scott, the antic longtime weather forecaster on the “Today” show, whose work, by his own cheerful acknowledgment, made it clear that you don’t need a weatherman
to know which way the wind blows, died on Saturday at his farm in Deplane, Va. 

His death was confirmed by his wife, Paris Keena Scott. She did
not specify a cause, saying only that he had died after a brief
illness.

Mr. Scott, who had earlier played both Bozo the Clown and the
original Ronald McDonald on television (below), was among
the first of a generation of television weathermen who stressed showmanship over science.
