Tiger Cub Scout Field Trip

On March 1st, a group of Tiger Cub Scouts from Ruckersville Elementary School came by the Newsplex to get a tour of how the weather center works. While they were here, we looked at some of the weather maps that meteorologists study every day to predict the weather. Then we looked at some "TV friendly" maps that we use every day in order to show viewers what the weather over the next several days will be like. Then we put our skills to the test and got up in front of the weather wall to practice doing the weather and it seemed to me that we might have some future meteorologists in the group! Then we moved over to the anchor desk and took a group photo!
