Sunny, snowing, raining or blowing, the weather affects everything we do. Scientists study the weather to try to predict what will happen and to save lives. How do they do it? What's a high or a low front?

The guest scientists for "Weather" are:

  • Scott Dorval, Chief Meteorologist, KIVI TV, Boise
  • Robyn Heffernan, meteorologist, National Interagency Fire Center
