Weather Kids back on radio
November 3, 2005
The Sierra House Weather Kids are back on the air. This year’s “Mini-Meteorologists” made their debut on KOWL 1490 AM and KRLT 93.3 FM on Oct. 24.
These 13 fifth-grade honor students completed Dr. Jon Helman’s before-school weather class. The curriculum included instruction about the atmosphere, heat source, air pressure, heat transfer winds and clouds, instruments, forecasting and storms. The students watched and/or participated in many experiments, some working and some not, making the classes fun.
To learn the real lowdown on what will happen weather-wise in the Lake Tahoe Basin be sure to tune in daily to the Boris Shiloff show at 8:15 a.m. or the Justin Wright program shortly thereafter on KOWL/KRLT.
Weather Class 2005-2006 members are Jordyn Dobson, Drew Norberg, Jack Coolbaugh, Brooke King, Leo Trebotich, Roger Williams, Daisylyn Perea, Sam Burba, Thomas Smith, Janelle Spandau, Cody Higgins, Bailey David and Conner Rettig.
