Meteorologists from four local TV stations, including WRAL's Greg Fishel and Elizabeth Gardner, will teach about what causes weather and how to predict it. They participated in Q&A sessions at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

North Carolina State University researchers will talk about their storm-chasing experiences, and Red Cross officials will discuss how families can prepare for storms and how local governments respond to storms.

The event runs 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at the Museum of Natural Sciences, 11 W. Jones St.
