Photograph of Dr. James Stagg who was chief of meteorology in Britain during WWII. 

Dr. Stagg is credited with convincing General Eisenhower to postpone D-Day to the 6th of June 1944.  He, and his three meteorological teams, forcasted that a break in the existing bad weather would happen on that day.

Despite opposition from other weather men, who were also providing input to the Supreme Allied Commander, Stagg made the right call.
