TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Weather has highlighted the lesson plans lately at Buck Lake Elementary in Tallahassee, and our own chief meteorologist added some of his own knowledge to the mix.

Casanova Nurse visited the entire second-grade wing of the school Thursday to discuss certain weather concepts to the students.  He explained to the kids how the water cycle was created, touched upon types of severe weather and safety tips, reviewed the four seasons, and gave insight into his role as a broadcast meteorologist in a multi-platform digital media world.

The presentation followed the annual school-wide launching of a series of weather balloons from the school property last week.  Balloon launch coordinator Monique Eick reported the three balloons landed in parts of northeast Florida after traveling to an estimated height of 100,000 feet.
