Today, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien spoke with students in Colorado Springs about how to be prepared for severe weather.
First, she met with Mrs. Brooker's 3rd-grade class from Audobon Elementary. The students were very enthusiastic and wanted more time for questions at the end.
Then she met with Mrs. Fittje's 3rd-grade class from Venetucci Elementary. The students created their own 7-day forecasts today and are encouraged to observe the weather over the next week.
