(WJHL)- Today, February 5th, is National Weatherperson’s Day!
John Jeffries, known as one of America’s first weather observers, was born on this day in 1744. He began taking observations in Boston in 1774. In 1784, he took the very first balloon observation in London, England. (NWS) National Weatherperson’s Day honors John Jeffries’ impacts in the world of weather and honors the men and women in this field.
Weather is something that impacts you every single day. Meteorologists all over the world work around the clock to analyze data, forecast, and deliver that information to the public.
