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: Snow, sleet and freezing rain (mainly ice); Coating - 2 inches for most with locally higher amounts (towards Poconos) Wintry mix changing to rain overnight. Dense patchy fog in many areas.  Low: 27

    Wednesday: Cloudy and not as cold with intermittent rain and drizzle; also patchy fog. High: 40

    Wednesday Night: Rain changing to snow late, turning much colder. Low: 24

    ***Winter Weather Advisory in effect through early Wednesday morning***

    ***Winter Storm Watch in effect from Wednesday evening through Thursday evening***

    Tonight snow, sleet and freezing rain (mainly sleet and freezing rain) will continue eventually changing over to rain from southwest to northeast as temperatures slowly rise overnight. However, additional accumulations of ice before the change to plain rain. Roadways are very slick this evening and will continue to be until temperatures rise well above 32 degrees overnight.

    We will see some rain and drizzle at times on Wednesday with highs topping out near 40 degrees, but colder air wraps in late Wednesday night and Thursday and snow will break out. It looks like several inches of snow can fall with that system late Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. However, this storm has a high bust potential because a slight change in the track of the storm could mean more/less snow. Please stay tuned for the very latest over the next day, but here's a look at our thinking right now.

    Snowfall Probabilities for snow Wednesday night into Thursday:

    Chances for 1-3": 20%

    Chances for 3-6": 60%

    Chances for 6+": 20%
