Father's Day is observed on the 3rd Sunday of June in the United States.  Its first celebration was in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910.  Modern Father's Day was invented by Sonora Smart Dodd. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who reared his six children in Spokane, Washington. She was inspired by Anna Jarvis's efforts to establish Mother's Day.  Although she initially suggested June 5, her father's birthday, she did not provide the organizers with enough time to make arrangements, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June. President Calvin Coolidge recommended it as a national holiday in 1924.  In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson made Father's Day a holiday to be celebrated on the third Sunday of June.  The holiday was not officially recognized until 1972, during the presidency of Richard Nixon.  More phone calls are made in the U.S. during Mother's Day than during Father's Day, but the percentage of collect calls on Father's Day is much higher, making it the busiest day of the year for collect calls.  Also, phone calls during both Mother's Day and Father's Day tend to last longer.  Father's Day is accompanied by higher sales of electronics and tools, but a smaller number of phone calls, greeting cards and gifts than Mother's Day.  It is speculated that this is due to the greater number of households with a mother than households with a father (due to single mothers).

Specific weather data follows.  These were measured in downtown Springfield from 1879 to 1947, and at Capital Airport from 1948 to the present.
