BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a big day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. It’s the seventh annual Weather Field Trip Day!

Bob Turk and meteorologists Tim Williams and Chelsea Ingram taught kids how weather works and how to track it.

Under gray skies and mist, the yellow school buses arrived because WJZ, MASN and the Orioles’ Weather Field Trip Day goes off rain or shine.

“We’ve been waiting for this,” one girl said.

More than 12,000 students, teachers and parents show up from across the region to learn about weather.

In all, 11,422 kids attended this year.

“A record number of kids came out. A great opportunity. WJZ enjoys doing this with MASN and the Orioles. It’s great fun, and a great learning experience as well,” said Jay Newman, WJZ-TV general manager.

In the open air classroom, students learned about severe weather, hurricanes, winter weather, and they even saw a balloon launch from the National Weather Service.

“It was great,” one boy said.

“They actually taught us about the weather,” a girl said.

Next year’s event promises to be bigger and better. The sky is the limit.

For the second year in a row, Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram performed the National Anthem.
