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: Clear to partly cloudy and not as cool as recent nights. Low: 62

    Thursday: Very warm and more humid with a mixture of sun and clouds. High: 89

    Thursday Night: Partly cloudy, warm and humid with a shower in spots. Low: 69

    After a warm and sunny day on Wednesday, expect clear to partly cloudy skies tonight as low temperatures drop into the lower 60s.

    The comfortable weather will come to an end on Thursday as the humidity levels rise and high temperatures approach 90 degrees. While the day will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds, there could be a few spotty showers around Thursday night into Friday as a cold front moves through the area. In fact, a thunderstorm can't be ruled out either on Friday. However, this is not a major rain event for us with most of the viewing area receiving a few hundredths to a quarter of an inch of rain. Along with a shower or thunderstorm, Friday will also be humid with highs topping out in the low 90s.

    The weekend, at this point, is looking pretty good. Although it will be very warm with highs reaching the upper 80s, it won't be as humid as the end of the work week. Plus skies will feature plenty of sunshine all weekend long.
