Before the days of the Weather Channel and 24-hour news broadcasts, people had to observe the world around them for signs of storms or other changes in the weather.  One of the most common ways to do this was by studying the clouds. Join us as we learn to read the clouds, predict the weather and have some fun.

Presentation times are 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and the program will last approximately 35 to 40 minutes. This program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress appropriately for the season as the presentation takes place in a period setting.

Held at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site, 12300 Park Rd. 12, Washington, TX 77880. Accessible for the mobility impaired. Program subject to cancellation.
