Happy birthday to John Jeffries. WHO?? Jeffries took the 1st balloon observation in 1784 and was one of America's first weather observers.

You mean no one else observed the weather before that? I observe it everyday. Today is going to be cloudy with early showers and it's going to clear up this afternoon. We could see 2 inches of snow tomorrow. See, I'm observing....I digress.

So today we commemorate his birth with National Weatherman's Day! So if you see a weatherman's shadow, does that mean 6 more weeks of winter? Whoops, wrong holiday.

In their honor, here are some pick-up lines that weathermen use.

I'm not the morning DJ.....Heyyy, wait a minute.

I predict a warm breeze...will blow in your ear.

It's gonna be cold today...but with you in my forecast, it will get warmer.

You spelled "forecast" wrong. There should be "U and I" in it.

If any of these works, then you must look like Jim Cantore. Although the line he would use is "Hi, I'm Jim Cantore." Happy NW Day!
