MINNEAPOLIS – Should we bring raincoats to the big game? Will the fog clear before we reach shore? Should we let the animals in in case there’s a tornado this afternoon? People love to talk about the weather, but it’s more than just a conversation.
On Wednesday, News19 This Morning host Brandon Taylor spoke to KARE11 meteorologist Guy Brown in Minneapolis, Minnesota about his new book, Look Up to See What the Weather Will Be.
February 28 through March 2 is designated as Read Across America Week, an annual reading engagement and awareness program that motivates children to read. As a child, Brown was fascinated by the weather, which is why he decided to write the children’s book. He hopes to spark interest in the science behind weather forecasting.
Hours before we wake up, Brown is in the TV studio checking atmospheric readings and humidity rates, and Doppler reports he needs to tell his viewers how to plan for the coming days. In the book, in addition to the science of weather, Brown introduces readers to some of the animals that predict the weather in environments around the world and how animals use their adaptations to weather the storms in cities and towns and in the wild.
With Mario Lugo’s vivid art, readers see some of the amazing cloud formations that give us wildly different weather patterns, while Brown introduces readers to cloud-detection techniques.
So bring your rain boots, pack sunscreen and get ready for a weather adventure!
Don’t forget to watch the clouds and take notes along the way. At the end you will be ready to become a meteorologist just like Guy Brown.
