NOTE TO PARENTS & KIDS:
The following is a sample script only. Feel free to deliver the weather in your own style! As long as the critical information (high and low temperatures, general conditions, etc.) is in the forecast, that’s what we care about most! The total forecast should run somewhere between 20 and 30 seconds, so you may want to pre-read it a few times to make sure it’s in the ballpark. If you’re looking to get a little creative, you could perhaps include what people should wear, or to plan some extra time if we’re expecting snowy or icy roads, or to put on the sunscreen if it’s going to be hot. You get the idea. Put your own twist into the forecast!
Also, once we confirm you as a kid reporter, we will call around 6:35am and play it back around 7:08.
Once confirmed, go to our weather partner, Local News 8’s weather site: http://www.localnews8.com/weather/index.html
You can use information from the “Detailed Forecast” section on that page.
