Weather, News, and You at The Da Vinci Science Center

Ed has visited hundreds of elementary schools (just like yours) throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey over the last twelve years. In addition, Ed has been presenting another program specifically tailored for the DaVinci Science Center! Back by popular demand, he will be presenting his fun, energetic, and educational weather program at the DaVinci Science Center at Cedar Crest College in Allentown. Ed's program will be held on selected Tuesdays (see schedule below). The program will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will last approximately 60 minutes). (Note: teachers, principals, parents: please be sure to call ahead to check availability as space for Ed's program will be limited). For more information, be sure to check the DaVinci Center's website for detailed information on how your group can take part in Ed's program. In addition to Ed's school program, Ed has teamed up with the DaVinci Center to provide a completely functional WFMZ Weather Center (at the DaVinci Center). This new, highly interactive weather experience will be open during the regular hours at the DaVinci Science Center. There you will find:

● A FUN virtual weather kiosk where a "virtual Ed" will teach the children about the wonderful world of weather...with a push of a button (which changed annually)!

● Visitors will be able to try their hand as a weather person in front of a blue screen. Now you can be on TV under all sorts of incredible weather conditions....inside the DaVinci Center!

● Ed will help you learn how to forecast with some of the best weather tools.....and lots more!

● The entire weather center is highly interactive....lots of fun for young and old alike! Don't miss it!

  • Forecast Discussion

    Tonight: Partly cloudy and cold. Low: 15

    Saturday: Mostly cloudy and chilly with a snow shower or flurries. High: 36 Low: 31

    Another cold day on tap for us Saturday. We could see some passing flurries or even a snow shower during the first part of Saturday. Overnight look for the clouds to increase as a warm front approaches the region. The increase in clouds should help to hold temperatures steady after midnight, but that still won't stop them from dipping into the teens in many locations. There could be some black ice around into Saturday morning. Saturday will be a rather cloudy day as the warm front lifts to the north. The passing of this front may also spark up a few flurries (or a snow shower). A dusting is possible in our northern tier counties. Highs on Saturday will still be in the 30s, but with the warm front off to our north on Sunday the region will be able to tap into some of that warmer air as highs top out near 50 degrees. Along with the warmer temperatures Sunday will feature mainly cloudy skies.
