Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
NEW YORK (December 12, 2012)--Jane Lubchenco, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said Wednesday she will leave her post at the end of February.
"I have decided to return to my family and academia," Lubchenco wrote to NOAA employees.
Lubchenco became well known to the public when she played a prominent role in the government's response to the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Some scientists accused her agency of downplaying the magnitude of the spill.
No successor was immediately announced.
