What's Up With the Weather?

Stephanie Abrams talks tornadoes and sunshine on The Weather Channel

By Andrew Liang | October 28 , 2010

One of the most famous faces on The Weather Channel, which broadcasts weather conditions happening around the world, is Stephanie Abrams.

Abrams is a meteorologist who hosts the morning show "Your Weather Today" and co-hosts "Wake Up with Al" with Al Roker, meteorologist of NBC's Today Show.

"I think weather is so important because it affects us everyday, 24 hours a day, no matter what we're doing," Abrams told this Kid Reporter at The Weather Channel's Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, recently. "If we're sitting at home, going to get groceries, it is always affecting us, no matter what, if it's sunny, raining, hot or cold."

Her job can be dangerous, although she laughs at the thought. To find out more — and to see Abrams in action — click on the play button!

    Sunny Weather Days

    Sunny Weather Days

    by Pam Rosenberg

    REVIEWS:


     
    1/1/07 School Library Journal
    Each book begins with a "Word Hunt" spread that features seven words, their pronunciations, and accompanying photos that direct readers to look for the words in bold in the text. Young readers will take pleasure in learning simple facts while discovering new words along the way. On each spread a paragraph or two of text faces a captioned full-page photo. These full-color pictures show the featured conditions, as well as a variety of outdoor scenes of children and adults enjoying nature. For example, Wild Weather has a photo of a hand holding large balls of hail. Very simple presentations for beginning readers.
