From 1996, Paulusma became the regular weather forecaster of SBS6. In Piets Weather Forecast he came every day from a different outdoor location in the country with the weather forecast. He closed the program, broadcast after Heart of the Netherlandsstandard with the Frisian words oant moarn (‘see you tomorrow’).
At the end of 2019, Paulusma stopped working at SBS6. As of January 1, 2020 Piets Weer can be seen at Omroep MAX and heard on NPO Radio 5. Last Friday he presented a weather forecast on the radio. “It is unbelievable how bravely Piet endured his illness. As long as it went on, he wanted to continue working,” says Omroep MAX director Jan Slagter.
In January of this year, Paulusma was appointed knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau because of his commitment to Friesland and various charities. “It does a lot to me,” he said at the time.
