Each Groundhog Day, The Weather Discovery Center honors individuals who have advanced the knowledge of weather science, climatology, and meteorology.
As Hall of Fame members, they help to represent and advance the mission of the Weather Discovery Center, which is to help visitors explore and understand the science behind weather phenomena.
Join us in February as we induct our newest Hall of Fame member!
2011 Inductee: Dr. Greg Forbes
As the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, Dr. Forbes has reported on every dangerous weather hazard. After receiving his B.S. in meteorology from Pennsylvania State University, his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, he studied under Dr. T. Theodore Fujita.
He has co-authored and edited, researched and traveled. He was a forecaster in Sweden for a NASA project to measure the North Polar ozone hole, and he also spent three summers performing studies to improve lightning forecasting at the Kennedy Space Center.
