Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- Have you ever wondered what a meteorologist does? People in Grand Forks had the chance to find out at the National Weather Service. An open house let families learn about how forecasts and warnings are issued and how data is broken down. Visitors toured the facility and talked with storm chasers. This is just one way for meteorologists to meet the people they serve. NWS Sr. Meteorologist, Dave Kellenbenz, says, “The kids are asking a lot about lightening and thunder and how that forms and stuff like that so we try to explain some of that to them and how to get that information on the web page as well.” The event is held every couple years.
