Tag It Tuesday! The Weather Report

On this day 141 years ago, the forerunner of today’s National Weather Service – the Signal Service Corps’ Division of Telegrams and Reports for the Benefit of Commerce – made its first meteorological observations and reports and the weather hasn’t been the same since.

“Weather” you like singing in the rain, chasing storms, or checking the daily barometric pressure, the National Archives has weather records for you.  This Tag It Tuesday we invite you to join us for a flurry of tagging our weather related records in honor of those first weather reporters.

We forecast that you’ll have a great time tagging our weather related records.  Here are a few images from our holdings to get you started!
