MILLBURN, NJ - Early next week, students at Deerfield Elementary School will be getting a personal lesson from two professionals in the field of meteorology. WNBC's Chief Meteorologist Janice Huff will be joined at the school by Maria LaRosa, another meteorologist with the station.
Together, the two will present a program entitled Weather Kids, which according to a release sent out by the station, acquaints elementary school students with important weather terminology and answers questions they have regarding severe weather.
Following the presentation, all students in attendance will receive a certificate of completion, as well as a tour of WNBC’s Storm Chaser weather vehicle. The Weather Kids Program that will be presented is in its third year.
Huff joined NBC 4 New York in 1995 and has worked in various capacities in the studio. She belongs to the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society. LaRosa, like Huff, was born in the Tri-State area, returning in 2019 after almost nine years at The Weather Channel in Atlanta.
“Our Storm Team 4 family is passionate about the Weather Kids program," said Amy Morris, NBC 4 New York Vice President of News. "They love visiting schools and discussing weather and science with the students. Our team can’t wait to return to the classrooms to work with our region’s next generation of weather experts."
