Talking Weather at Carter Elementary

Do you know the different cloud types and what kind of weather they may bring? Meteorologist Josh Fitzpatrick talked to the 4th graders at Carter Elementary School about this subject.

On Monday I visted Mr. Griffith's fourth grade classes at Carter Elementary in Carter County, Kentucky.  Pictured below is a group photo of us sitting on the front steps of the school.  It was a very nice and warm spring morning!  Which was a good change from their 18 snow days this past winter.   

I must say, I enjoy driving to Carter County.  It's very scenic and everyone's so nice.  Some of you may not know this but I was born in Prestonsburg, KY and for a brief time when I was very young, we lived in Grayson, KY before moving to Gallia County, OH.  I remember several times as a kid visiting Carter Caves and Grayson Lake.

During my visit to Carter Elementary, we talked a lot about clouds types and what kind of weather they may bring.

-Cumulus clouds often mean fair weather.

-Stratus clouds usually mean a grey day with rain or snow.

-Cirrus clouds often indicate a change in the weather's about to happen.

-Cumulonimbus clouds are the thunderstorm clouds.  'nimbus' in cumulonimbus is Latin for rain.

Keep up the great work at Carter Elementary and thanks for having me!
