Starting March 19, this 3-part series covers weather basics with Senior Meteorologist Mark Breen.

Ever wonder how meteorologists make weather forecasts that that can influence the ways we travel, grow our gardens, and prepare for the day? Mark Breen helps you develop the skills to identify, observe, and record the weather in your own backyard using the same skills he draws on to create Eye on the Sky forecasts.

This 3-part series is held on March 19, 24 and April 2 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium. The cost is $40/member or $50/non-member.
