Today is National Weatherperson’s Day (also known as National Weatherman’s Day). It is celebrated on John Jeffries birthday because he is recognized as the First American Weatherman. The purpose of this observances is honor those working in every facet of meteorology and weather forecasting.
Personally, I have always been fascinated by meteorology. The way topography can affect the weather is intriguing to me, as well. I like to joke about weather people, but I respect what they do, and I am thankful for the technology. Forecasting saves man lives!
