The meteorologists of the National Weather Service (NWS) are a pretty impressive crew. To get the job you have to have a lot of knowledge, and definitely know how to do more than just talk about the weather.

To be a meteorologist and/or hydrologist employed by the National Weather Service you need a Bachelor's degree in Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, or Hydrology (Physical Science or Engineering). These fields of study are math-intensive. To major in meteorology, you will receive a minor (18 semester hours) in mathematics.

The Twin Cities office of the NWS is like most of them (LaCrosse, Duluth, etc). They're serious about weather so that you and I are safe. However, that doesn't mean they don't tell jokes.

Your average Tweet looks like this...

The best response so far...

I couldn't find any other funny NWS Twin Cities Tweets, so instead, think about following Lake Superior...

And sometimes, all you get is the sound of The Lake...
