Weather in the Classroom Blurb

WBRC FIRST ALERT WEATHER IN THE CLASSROOM

Hey students and teachers, it’s time to learn more about the incredible world of weather!

From discovering what makes a thunderstorm rumble, to what makes snow fall from the sky, each week our team of weather experts brings the science of meteorology into your classroom. 

There are two opportunities for students to take part in this year. The first is a new concept that our team developed as a safer alternative than in-person school visits called WBRC First Alert Weather in the Classroom, and secondly is our weekly interactive Facebook Live weather sessions.

WBRC First Alert Weather in the Classroom is a virtual classroom led by WBRC First Alert Weather Meteorologists J-P Dice, Wes Wyatt, Jill Gilardi, Matt Daniel, Fred Hunter, Weather Forecaster, Mickey Ferguson. Presentations consist of an online tour of the WBRC First Alert Weather Center, a look at how forecasts are made; and in-depth discussions on the types of weather that can impact west, central, and east Alabama.

Classrooms are also invited to join us on the WBRC FOX6 News Facebook page for a live and interactive update every Wednesday as a WBRC FOX6 Meteorologist delivers an educational presentation on a weather-related topic. Our meteorologists will be on standby to answer your questions. We hope you take part in the conversation and share with others.
