Celebrated annually on February 5th, the day honors the efforts of meteorologists and weather forecasters in the United States.

John Jeffries, a pioneering figure in the field of meteorology in the United States, is also honored by this document.

Jeffries, born in 1744, first recorded daily meteorological patterns in Boston in 1774 and conducted the inaugural balloon weather observation in 1784.

 Jeffries' documentation of daily meteorological conditions established the foundation for contemporary weather prediction.

Meteorologists play a crucial role in interpreting meteorological data and providing precise forecasts.
