Please see announcement below:

From:
Curtis D. Carey
Communications Director, NOAA National Weather Service

Date:

Subject Line:
National Weather Service on /Jeopardy!/

Clue: Rain or shine, /Jeopardy!/ host Alex Trebek will introduce a new category featuring this federal agency on Wednesday, November 26.

Answer: What is the National Weather Service?

If you’re a fan of the TV game show /Jeopardy!/, you will want to watch on Wednesday, November 26, for the debut of a new category: The National Weather Service. Jeopardy! producers worked with staff in the Upton, NY, Weather Forecast Office to develop clues and answers. Jeopardy! also shot weather forecasting scenes there and collected radar and other images to be used in video clues.
