First Alert Weather Visits St. Joseph Elementary in Big Bend


by Chief Meteorologist Mark McGinnis

Chief Meteorologist Mark McGinnis visited St. Joseph Elementary in Big Bend Tuesday morning, December 18th to talk about weather.

Mary Nichols' 3rd grade and Lisa Goertz's 4th grade classes learned about Wisconsin's weather, Weather Instruments, The Water Cycle and how to make a weather forecast. The children were very interested and well behaved even with snow beginning to fall during the presentation.
