ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A few future meteorologists visited the WALB studio Friday afternoon.

After presenting their weather forecasting projects, students from Lee County Middle School West experienced what it's like to be a broadcast meteorologist for an afternoon.

The students got a behind the scenes tour of the station, learned how weather graphics are made and even got to record their own forecast on the green screen.

"My favorite part was in the studio doing the forecast," said student Emma Bailey

 A few students said that after seeing a news studio, they want to work in the news industry when they grow up. 

To see more of the tour and their forecasts, you can visit Andrew Gorton's Facebook page.
