Following the start of the school year, as the leaves begin to change, the Sierra House Weather Kids return. Since 1987 if one listens to local radio, the innocent, yet accurate, weather forecast followed by a witty joke can be heard each school day.

This year 14 fifth-graders went through Dr. Jon Helman’s before-school instruction. They put in more than six hours learning about the atmosphere, heat source and transfer, seasons and climate, fronts, highs and lows, clouds, storms, instruments and forecasting. They are now ready to take on the experts.

The Weather Kids are Will Caglia, Grant Middlebrook, Otto Trebotich, Cameron Allen, David Levesque, Missy Miller, Nick and Caitie Kushner, Max Delallo, Casey Delacruz, Julie Glenn, Kasey Roberts, Bonnie Mansfield and Brittany Rumble.

Anyone who is inclined to know what has and will happen in the daily weather experience can tune in to KRLT 93.9 FM at 8:05 a.m. or KOWL AM at 8:15 a.m. and become part of

South Lake Tahoe’s longest continuing radio tradition.
