      Fun at school: Our newest WeatherBug school

      We now have over 400 schools in the Washington area that are part of the WeatherBug network.{}

      Schools with interactive weather stations and cameras. I started this network (in a previous life) as the "4-WINDS" program of weather stations in schools and using weather and weather stations in schools as a "window into science and math".{} Wednesday I had fun at one of our news schools to join the network, St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School in Woodbridge.

      I not only talked about how I became a meteorologist, but took lots of great questions.

      Then a tour of the school that had a "weather theme" competition in the{} school hallways.{} Everything from sunshine, to wind, storms and a great tornado.

      ....{}and a winter theme with a familiar mug dressed for winter.

      and a pre-K group of penguins.{}{}

      Everyone was into weather and as you drive around your neightborhood, if you see something like this on the roof.{}

      It's one of our WeatherBug schools and may be the home of a future meteorologist.{} Find out more about the program and how your school can join here.
