NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - It may have snowed on Friday, but severe weather season is here. Meteorologist Jessica Raney spent the day at the North Platte Public Library teaching teens about the weather.

Students learned more than just what a meteorologist is and what it takes to become one, but also what types of clouds there are and how they form.

A couple of the students shared what they learned through the lesson.

Many have learned about the cloud types before but needed a refresher.

Nebraska tends to have some pretty crazy weather in the summer. This stresses the importance of understanding which clouds mean you should get out of the pool and run inside.

Teens created a cloud chart made out of cotton balls, construction paper and glue. They also made a cloud spotter wheel to help identify types of clouds when they are outside.
