Cleveland Abbe (* 3. December 1838 in New York town center, NY, the USA; † 28. October 1916 in Chevy Chase, Maryland) was an US-American astronomer and a first Meteoroligist and is considered as a father of the U.S. Weather office.

Since that 1. September 1869 published Abbe private weather bulletin, which applied to the range Cincinnati. To 9. February 1870 authorized the American congress the weather service. Abbe was already at that time the only person in the USA those experience in the production of weather charts on the basis telegraphic reports had.

Abbe was therefore offered an important position in the new authority, which he also at the 3. January 1871 assumed. It was frequently the official Wettervorhersager. Abbe was a strong proponent of time belts on earth.
