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: Turning out clear and not as humid (isolated t-storm this evening, mainly south). Low: 66

    Sunday: Sunny and hot. High: 95

    Sunday Night: Clear to partly cloudy; dew points begin to rise again. Low: 70

    ***EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE GREATER PHILADELPHIA AREA THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON***

    ***EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH IN EFFECT FOR PARTS OF SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA AND MOST OF NEW JERSEY FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON***

    With the heat this weekend, make sure you are staying hydrated, wearing light clothing and staying in air conditioned areas. Please take care of pets and check on children and the elders. The UV index this weekend will also remain high so try to stay out of direct sun, frequently apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses and a hat.

    We saw plenty of sun today, but there have been a few thunderstorms in southern parts of the viewing area. There will be an isolated storm this evening, but otherwise skies will be clear tonight with less humidity and temperatures falling into the mid 60s.

    Tomorrow looks mostly sunny as high temperatures reach the mid 90s. The record for ABE is 95 in 1999 and RDG is 96 in 2010, so we could tie or break those records for Sunday.

    The heat sticks around for next week, so expect highs to soar into the 90s. Monday will be especially humid with a shower or thunderstorm later in the day, but the rest of the week is looking partly to mostly sunny for now.
