by Mark McGinnis

MILWAUKEE---Chief Meteorologist Mark McGinnis visited two second grade classes at Prairie Elementary Tuesday morning. He spent time teaching the students about Wisconsin's different weather. The students also learned what types of weather to expect during the different seasons.

The students participated in naming weather instruments, learning how to read and understanding the 7 Day forecast and also how to dress based on the forecast.
