 This evening we went on a tour of the NOAA weather station in Melbourne, FL.  

A Meteorologist, gave a presentation on the work they do at the weather center, showed us the equipment outside and the computers they use inside to help predict the weather and give weather advisories. 

 Above the meteorologist showed us the rain gauges that are used on the property, one used a drip pan. 
Below, she showed us the various tools they use on the computers that use data from satellites to help predict the weather. 
The doppler radar is pictured above, which has a dish inside that sends out signals to bounce off moisture, clouds, smoke, and flocks of birds to indicate where rain or objects are in the region.
