ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Fox 2 Meteorologist Chris Higgins and Storm Chaser George Wise teamed up with HEC-TV and Ladue High School to bring student from across North America the “Weather Science Behind Forecasting”. The two broadcasters gave students a behind the scenes tour of the FOX 2 studios and talked about the conditions that create severe weather.

The focus was on two very different spring days of actual St. Louis weather. They answered questions from hundreds of students from New Jersey to British Columbia who were linked together via satellite and internet video bridge.

Replays of the program can be viewed at HETC.org.

This program was made possible by a partnership between FOX 2, HEC-TV and Ladue Schools.
