Yesterday afternoon, Meteorologist Christy Shields, went to Penns Valley Elementary School to visit with the 3rd grade classrooms.

During the visit, the kids learned about how to put a forecast together, weather safety, and did some experiments. Each student got to make their own tornado in a tube. Thank you for asking so many great questions about safety preparations and weather! Thanks for having us visit!
