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

    Today: Hot and humid with plenty of sunshine. (patchy morning fog) High: 91

    Tonight: Clear, warm and humid. Low: 65

    Wednesday: Sunny to partly cloudy, hot and humid. (patchy morning fog) High: 93 Low: 66

    This hot and humid pattern stays with us for a while, so we'll start out September very summer-like. Yesterday to finish August, we hit 90 degrees. Including today, the next 3 afternoons will be in the 90s as well.

    This morning we have some patchy fog in spots, otherwise a mostly sunny start to the day. Remaining mostly sunny this afternoon as our high temperatures reach into the 90s once again with humid conditions. Tonight, stays mostly clear and rather warm and humid with lows only in the mid 60s.

    On Wednesday and Thursday we will see high temperatures in the low 90's with humid conditions as the Bermuda high to our southeast strengthens. Most of this stretch will be dry with our next decent chance for showers and t-storms holding off until Thursday afternoon/night and Friday. Friday's temperatures will only reach the low 80s due to a "back-door" type front. But back to some warmer conditions for the Labor Weekend, with a few spotty showers and t-storms.
