February 5th National Weatherman’s Day

Imagine the life of a weatherman, and again… isn’t it supposed to be a Weather Person!?! You get up every morning hoping you have predicted the weather correctly for your viewing audience. Sure there’s a 50/50 chance of being wrong, but that also means there is a 50/50 chance you are right!

Today it isn’t enough to just be a good meteorologist. You have to speak well and at least be good looking enough to not turn your audience’s stomach! Today was created to honor John Jeffries, the first American meteorologist, or at least a man that kept the weather records from 1774-1816. He was born on February 5th, 1744. Weather does generally come in a pattern, figure out that pattern and you may be able to predict your own weather!

How to celebrate – Watch the weather on tv or listen to it on the radio. Learn to predict your own weather. Always carry an umbrella just in case.
