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!
