Get ready to say goodbye the Today show weatherman Willard Scott.
The 81-year-old has announced his retirement and is set to leave the NBC series after 35 years. His last show will be on Dec. 15.
"He is literally my second dad. I love that man," current main weather anchor Al Roker said on Twitter on Friday via the Today show's page, calling Scott his "mentor and hero."
Scott joined the Today show in 1980 as a weatherman. Roker substituted for him on the series in the '90s and then became the show's main weather anchor in 1996, after which Scott took over his role when he was absent.
