The Weather Weenie board was instituted in September of 1989 by Ian Baker, and then joined by Mark Branson, and Ian Wittmeyer, as a way to honor/ridicule those people who make comments incorporating atmospheric jargon into everyday conversation.

The idea of a Weather Weenie is not new. People here at the Colorado State University Atmospheric Science Department have long used the name, but it is only in the last ten years that they have been recorded for posterity.
