The American Meteorological Society publishes world-class scientific journals, books, and monographs.

This is not one of them.


When you find yourself umbrella-less in unexpected rain or shedding layers in sudden sunshine, it is good to have a sense of humor about the weather. Thankfully there is a wealth of weather jokes to tickle the funny bone of anyone who makes a hobby or career out of weather watching.

When past AMS president Jon Malay put out a call for weather jokes to members of the American Meteorological Society, he soon found himself in a deluge of puns, wordplay, and cartoons. Covering everything from rainy days to political seasons, Partly to Mostly Funny revels in the sillier side of the weather.
Jon Malay is a senior executive at Lockheed Martin Corporation’s Washington Operations. He is a fellow of the American Meteorological Society and recently served as its president. He lives in Virginia.
