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: Mainly clear. Low: 43

    Sunday: Sunny to partly cloudy. High: 80

    Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 54

    A beautiful day transitions into a tranquil, but chilly night with mainly clear skies overhead as temperatures fall into the low and mid 40s.

    Sunday will feature sunny to partly cloudy skies with the cloudier end of the forecast coming later in the day. The second half of the weekend will also be warmer with highs topping out near 80 degrees. 

    Memorial Day's forecast continues to improve as the showers and thunderstorms will mainly occur north and west of our viewing area on Monday. Now we're not completely ruling out the possibility of something sneaking in during the afternoon and evening, but most of the day and viewing area should stay dry with the best chance coming north and west of Allentown. Highs on Monday will reach into the mid and upper 80s, so it will definitely be warmer outside and a tad more humid.

    It becomes even more humid and warmer on Tuesday and Wednesday when high temperatures will soar into the 90s and challenge a few records. Along with the warmth we're also expecting more shower and thunderstorm activity both of those days.
