— Did you know February 5 is nationally recognized as National Weatherperson's Day?
Get to know the Stormcenter 7 team of Meteorologists a little more personally:
Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell
Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs
Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini
Meteorologist Brett Collar
According to the National Weather Service, the day commemorates the birth of John Jeffries in 1744. Jeffries, one of Americas first weather observers, began taking daily weather observations in Boston in 1774 and he took the first balloon observation in 1784.
This is a day to recognize the men and women who collectively provide Americans, and those of us here living in the ever-changing weather climate of the Miami Valley, with the life-saving information we need to plan our lives.
The Stormcenter 7 Team of meteorologists works 24-7 to analyze weather data and monitor the ONLY Live Doppler 7 radar right here in Dayton, and the National Weather Service radar in Wilmington, Ohio.
