What causes weather on Earth? How do meteorologists create a weather forecast? In this web seminar, AMS certified meteorologist Lori Pinson will share the basic aspects of weather, a behind the scenes look at how broadcast meteorologists generate daily and extended weather forecasts in studio and (due to the pandemic), from home, how we can protect ourselves from severe weather conditions plus, a brief overview of the upcoming hurricane season.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.

  • "I enjoyed the visual aspects of the seminar (videos) as well as the introduction to Lori's science corner and the water in the glass demo. This will be a great activity to do with my students."
  • "I really enjoyed all the educational videos but loved seeing what a day is like at your job thanks for sharing."
  • "I really enjoyed the videos that demonstrated how each storm was created. The lightening one definitely made me more aware of how dangerous they can be."
