Advisories & A Finely Tweaked Snowfall Forecast

Numeorus Advisories have been posted in the area. All starting at different times. What a GRRREAATTT National Weather Person Day! Yes... we have our own holiday! LOL

Let's get the nitty gritty out in the open. I have changed very few things with the map here in eastern KY. In order for me to line things up... I had to include Ohio in the forecast. Usually, on the outskirts of my forecast graphic, I don't highlight the data. I had to so I could get everything straight!

The advisories start at different times. Here's a link to figure it out! I'm too lazy to type them...lol

Friday Feb. 5, 2010 is National Weatherperson’s Day, which commemorates the 1744 birth of Dr. John Jeffries (1744-1819). Jeffries began taking weather measurements in 1774 in Boston where he was born.

Basically, you might say he was the first American weather observer.

A Boston physician, scientist and military surgeon during the American Revolution in Nova Scotia, Jeffries is also recognized for accompanying Jean-Pierre Blanchard on a 1785 balloon flight across the English Channel.

Jeffries was also the star witness in the Boston Massacre.

I went to see some fols at Riverview Healthcare in Floyd Co. on Friday. They invited me over for lunch on this weather holiday. I ended up with a plaque, a key to the city of Prestonsburg, and a coffee mug full of Hershey's kisses! A great group and a wonderful surprise... thanks guys!

C-Ya Bye
