TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Science lessons were supplemented Thursday by a visit from an ABC 27 First Alert Weather meteorologist.

Casanova Nurse traveled to Bond Elementary School in Tallahassee for a discussion about weather with the school's fifth-graders.

Cas explained the processes involved in weather creation and day-to-day changes, including the water cycle, the four seasons, cloud varieties, and weather observation and forecast methods.

Common kinds of observation equipment, like thermometers, were displayed for the groups, while more technological types like radar and radiosondes were discussed in the digital presentation.

If you are a teacher or coordinator of a civic organization and would like to have Casanova or another First Alert meteorologist to speak to your group, email weather@wtxl.tv with your request.
