Weatherperson’s Day, also known as Weatherman’s Day is a holiday that celebrates the meteorologists who make knowing future weather forecasts possible. We often take for granted the luxury of weather forecasts. We live in a world where we can gage the temperatures for our weekend trips weeks ahead of time and we can know to bring an umbrella even though it’s sunny in the morning. On February 5th we celebrate the people who make all of this possible. The holiday is celebrated on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the first weathermen who made significant discoveries in the field of meteorology by observing the weather throughout his life.
