In this week’s KTVA Weather Lab, I visited Trailside Elementary School, where the third graders in Mrs. Cragen and Mrs. Khaki’s classes wanted to know about the tools I use to forecast the weather.

The students discovered what thermometers, anemometers and barometers do and learned all about weather satellites and radar.

I also answered the KTVA Weather Lab Question of the Week: How do tsunamis start?

Every Tuesday, Melissa Frey will take the KTVA Weather Lab to a classroom in our community. If you have a weather question for Melissa or would like her to visit your classroom she can be reached via email or on Facebook and Twitter.
