KWWL Storm Track 7 meteorologist Jeff Kennedy paid a visit to Longfellow Elementary Talented and Gifted students April 25. Kennedy’s appearance to discuss weather and his job as meteorologist coincided with kindergartners’ and first graders’ study of weather, but all TAG students got in on the fun.
In addition to fielding weather questions, Kennedy presented a slide show on topics ranging from the sun’s affect on the earth to weather extremes.
Belle Plaine’s Danny Fisher was also on hand to tell students about his duties as a weather spotter.
A short segment Kennedy filmed with the students should air during the KWWL weather cast Saturday, April 30, at 6 p.m., and possibly again at 10 p.m.
