Weather Wisdom: Parley Coburn School Group 2

ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) - The sixth grade class at Parley Coburn School was featured in this week's Weather Wisdom. In the second group, Kylie asked the question, "I wanted to know where you get your information from, and how do you know it is accurate?"

Meteorologists rely on forecast models every day, which include the RPM, EURO, GFS, HRRR, and NAM. Models look at different weather parameters such as precipitation, winds, temperatures, and clouds.

Sometimes, the models do not always agree. When making a forecast, it is up to the meteorologist to decide which model is likely to be more accurate while also considering other factors.
