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: Mostly cloudy, increasingly windy and cold with flurries, snow showers and a locally heavy snow squall; a fresh coating to an inch and poor travel conditions possible. Low: 16

    Saturday: Windy and frigid with a few flurries; P.M. temps falling, "feels like" 10-15 degrees below zero. High: 17

    Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, blustery, and bitterly cold with the temperature challenging record lows (record low Sunday morning in ABE: -1). Low: -2

    ***WIND CHILL WARNING IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY MORNING UNTIL 1 PM SUNDAY FOR CARBON, MONROE, LUZERNE, PIKE AND SUSSEX COUNTIES***

    ***WIND CHILL ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON UNTIL 11 AM SUNDAY FOR MOST OF SOUTHEASTERN PA AND WESTERN NJ***

    ***WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY MORNING UNTIL 5 PM SATURDAY FOR MOST OF THE VIEWING AREA***

    An arctic front will push through by Saturday morning, and with it, we'll see the potential for some snow showers and a locally heavy snow squall tonight. This may cause a quick coating to an inch of accumulation in some spots, and rapidly deteriorating conditions. So while the snow showers and squalls may not last long, the strong winds and heavy snow could create dangerous traveling conditions. Otherwise, tonight will be mostly cloudy, increasingly windy and cold. 

    Both days this weekend will be bitterly cold with daytime highs only pushing into the teens and overnight lows near or below zero. This will be accompanied by very windy conditions, which will push wind chills to 10, 20 and possibly even 30 degrees below zero. A few flurries are also possible on Saturday, but they shouldn't amount to much more than a quick coating. Thankfully the winds will die down a bit for Sunday when plenty of sunshine will be present.

    Monday won't be as cold, but it will still be below average as highs top out around 30 degrees. The skies will be cloudy and by day's end a few flurries and maybe even a period of snow are possible. At this point minor accumulations are expected into Monday night before the temperatures rise and the snow transitions over to rain for Tuesday. Stay tuned over the weekend for the very latest on the early week storm.
