ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - From the frozen ground and shadows of winter to the rushing water and endless daylight of summer, Mountain Village sees a wide variety of weather along the great Yukon River.

The first graders in Ms. Queenie’s class are learning how to track the quick-changing conditions and then present the forecast to their community.

Meteorologist Melissa Frey got to visit their class virtually for a lesson on the science behind the weather forecast. These students also wanted to know what it’s like to be a meteorologist. Check out the video above for the answer.
