Daily Forecasts

Your young “weatherfan” will join a small group of campers and an expert instructor to explore the science and mystery of our planet’s weather. Forecasts are inspired by our Weather Wonders guest stars and partners.

Monday’s Forecast: The What and Why of Weather
What causes the seasons to change? Why do storms usually come from the west? Why does it snow so much in the mountains and rarely rain in the desert? The answers to these fundamental weather questions live in today’s session.

Tuesday’s Forecast: Spring & Summer Storms (and Sunshine)
Explore the seasons of thunderstorms, humidity, heat lightning, and other phenomena you can watch right from your window this time of year. Plus learn about surf forecasts, tides, and how to find the most perfect days at the beach.

Wednesday’s Forecast: Wild Winter Weather
How do blizzards and ice storms originate? What determines whether precipitation will take the form of rain, sleet, hail, or snow? And what causes avalanches? Explore winter wonderlands from the warm comfort of summertime.

Thursday’s Forecast: Natural Disasters
Explore the wildest events in the natural world: tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Learn why these events happen, how to anticipate them, and how to stay safe.

Friday’s Forecast: The Wonders of Weather
Weather gives us so many things to be grateful for: rainbows, sunsets, and TV meteorologists. Learn the many reasons to love weather, and explore the life of a weatherperson.
