Twin Cities weatherman addresses everyone's favorite topic: Weather


WCCO-Channel 4 meteorologist Chris Shaffer visited Rocky Branch Elementary Thursday, March 21.

Shaffer, who grew up in Stillwater, Minn., asked an assembly of students to guess what the deadliest weather is.

Most guessed tornadoes and hurricanes. The answer is heat waves, followed by rain (flooding) and lightning (thunderstorms).

Shaffer gave the Rocky Branch assembly summer tips, like staying hydrated and wearing light-colored clothes to avoid heat-related illness.
