Meteorologist Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel (right) visited the Virginia Tech wind tunnel in September to film an upcoming feature. While on campus, he was persuaded via Twitter by meteorology major Meredyth Ellington (front row, second from right) to make a surprise visit to the Introduction to Meteorology class. WDBJ meteorologist Robin Reed, who teaches the course, reports that Cantore brought a rock-star-like quality to the 8 a.m. lecture!
