BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a big day at Orioles Park at Camden Yards. It’s the sixth annual Weather Day!

Over 12,000 students from across the area took part in the event that gets bigger and bigger every year.

Meteorologists Chelsea Ingram and Tim Williams report.

A day out of school because of weather, but not for the reason you think.

“It’s Weather Day, welcome to Weather Day. What’s your favorite type of weather?” asked Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram.

“Sunny!” a crowd of students responded.

For the sixth straight year students, parents and teachers from around the state headed to Oriole Park at Camden Yards for Weather Field Trip Day.

More than 12,500 attended–the largest crowd ever.

Sponsored by WJZ-TV, MASN and the Baltimore Orioles, students learned about the weather.

From the jet stream to hurricanes and tornadoes, they even conducted a science experiment.

“They send  balloons up to see the weather in the sky,” a girl said.

“I learned how tornadoes can take down buildings and how they form,” a young boy said.
