  1. I am 13 and I got 10/10. Because of how hard I study in school, spelling is one of my strengths (I competed in the Badger State Spelling Bee this year). I do also owe being able to pass this to studying meteorology and watching meteorologists explain it all on The Weather Channel.

  2. I hit 90% on the spelling quiz. But I work as a meteorologist for NOAA . So I should have hit 100%

  3. 100%. TWC on air personalities, Abrams, Bettis, Brackett, Cantore, Carfagno, Goodloe & the 3
    Alex (Steele, Wallace & Wilson) are all great teachers!

  4. I’m only 15 and I got 10/10, and when it’s my time to go to college I would love to go to either the University of Oklahoma, Pennsylvania State University, or the University of California to learn to do meteorology bc I would love to be a meteorologist.

  5. Got a 90%! It certainly helps that I’ve read meteorology books and watch TWC because if I wasn’t familiar with the terms I probably wouldn’t have done so well! The only question I got wrong was number 9

  6. Woohoo! Good thing I had the combination of tons of spelling quizzes in school, with an intense need-to-know curiosity about all sorts of weather-realted terminology..

  7. 10/10 I thought that was mostly easy/common sense, but then I read a lot. Hadn’t heard of a few of the terms previously…

  8. Weather Wizard – 10 of 10 correct! After 30 years of weather watching and reporting, I would have been disappointed if I hadn’t done that well.
