Jesse Ferrell of Accuweather.com officially announced the rumor as true, leaking it to a known weather forum.
A call into Accuweather to confirm this was met with a hostile person on the other end that declined to comment on why Bastardi left, ending up in a hang up.
"I don't think we've issued an official release, but what I posted on his facebook page serves as truth", Ferrell said.
Bastardi was known for his long range forecasting and humor.
Paul Pastelok is now leader of AccuWeather's Long-Range Forecasting team and Henry Margusity is taking an expanded role with the Pro site.
The hit may come to a stab with Accuweather Inc. as many people viewed the site because of what Bastardi brought to them.
A posting on the Joe Bastardi Facebook fan page says he was not fired, and no he did not leave because of his views on Climate Change.
