What is the Three-Degree Guarantee?

Three Degree Logo

You can count on the experience of Storm Team 8.  In fact, their forecasts are so accurate that WQAD News 8 and Eriksen Chevrolet Buick in Milan, Ill. will back them up with money!

Storm Team 8 is so sure of their forecasts that they are giving viewers a Three-Degree Guarantee!

And, when they are right, a local charity will receive $20 for each day of the month that the forecast temperature is within the three-degree guarantee.

Every night Storm Team 8 will predict the next day’s high temperature. The forecast temperatures are compared to the actual temperature recorded by the National Weather Service.

When Storm Team 8’s forecast temperature is within the three-degree guarantee, the specified charity will receive $20.

How can my organization or charity be a recipient of the Three-Degree Guarantee?

Each month our sponsor, Eriksen Chevrolet Buick in Milan, Illinois, selects a charity or organization to receive the money from Three-Degree Guarantee.

If you would like to submit your organization or charity for consideration, please send a letter explaining that you would like to be considered and how the money will be used. Please include additional information explaining your organization or charity.
