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

    Overnight: Cloudy with rain late. Low: 46

    Sunday: Brisk and much cooler with rain most of the day; areas of fog. High: 50

    Sunday Night: On-and-off rain and drizzle; areas of fog (possible rumble of thunder late). Low: 46

    We saw a drier day Saturday with a few breaks in the clouds at times, but overnight, the rain continues to move in for Sunday. Low temperatures drop to the mid 40s overnight and then struggle to even reach 50 degrees on Sunday.

    Expect some steady rain on Sunday, eventually tapering back by the late afternoon and evening. Temperatures on Sunday will be cooler, trying to reach 50 degrees with a breeze out of the ENE making it feel raw and chilly. A few showers could linger around on Monday, but temperatures will be more seasonable by then with highs back into the mid 60s. A general 0.50-1" of rain with locally higher amounts is possible from this system. 

    We'll get a break from the rain activity on Tuesday, but the unsettled weather returns by Wednesday and lasts through the week. Temperatures next week continue to stay below average, with highs in the lower 60s while the average for early May is in the upper 60s.
