This feature showed up on the upper left side of the Front Page, and ran from August 1987 to at least November 1994, when they abruptly stopped. The month of December is missing, but at the very least, they didn't show up after 1995.
The majority of these single panel summaries had a man in a mask (or heavy glasses - it's hard to tell) enjoying, enduring or simply observing the weather patterns that were happening around him.
Particularly enjoyable were the instances where the weather was described like so:
The other half of the time, the guy was replaced by a Clam in times of more extreme weather.
This is the only instance the two of them appear in the same panel.
So, given this direct easy-to-understand method of describing the weather, why did they suddenly stop?
The problem ultimately stems from a limited set amount of varied weather patterns in North Carolina.
The weather tends to remain fairly consistent, leaving very little variance wherever possible.
For instance, this was the rarest of the Weather signs to show up.
The most common Weather Forecasts were Mild, Warm, during the Spring to Fall Months, and Chilly and Cold during the Winter Months. Not even a single instance of Snow or Flurries.
It's all up to speculation at this point, but the possibility of repeat Weather Patterns and the lack of wanting to pay the Cartoonist's pay for usage of his copyrighted images may have played a part.
