Weather Wisdom: Group 1 from Dana L Lyon Middle School

Local News

The fifth grade class from Dana L. Lyon Middle School is featured in this week’s Weather Wisdom. Carter Brown from group one asked, “How do you become a meteorologist?”

The American Meteorologist Society defines a meteorologist as: “An individual with specialized education who uses scientific principles to explain, understand, observe or forecast the earth’s atmospheric phenomena and/or how the atmosphere affects the earth and life on the planet.” That specialized education is a bachelor’s or higher degree in meteorology, or atmospheric science.

Because meteorology is both math and science based, oftentimes students also pick up a minor in those subjects.

A few colleges/universities in the Northeast include SUNY Oswego, SUNY Brockport, SUNY Albany, Pennsylvania State University, Lyndon State College, and Rutgers University.
