With engaging interactives and stunning images, this exhibit takes you through the scales of weather: global, national, regional, local, and personal.
At the focus of the exhibit is a skill called nowcasting. Even if you've heard a local forecast, you can learn to refine that forecast to predict if the Little League game will be rained out, if you should get the team off the field before lightning hits, or whether you should plan your outdoor picnic for the afternoon or evening. Join Boston-area meteorologists as they lead you through the steps of learning the valuable skill of nowcasting.
