In this week’s KTVA Weather Lab, I visited Bowman Elementary School, where the third-graders in Ms. Bonin’s class learned how the weather is unique in Alaska. 

I also answered the KTVA Weather Lab Question of the Week: Why doesn’t Southcentral Alaska get to see big thunderstorms?

Every Tuesday, Melissa Frey will take the KTVA Weather Lab to a classroom in our community. To see the previous week’s Weather Lab segments click here. 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
