Today, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited students in southern Colorado to teach them about severe weather in our state.

First, she went to Audubon Elementary to visit the 3rd graders.

Then, she went to Baca Elementary to visit the 2nd graders.

All of the students today were enthusiastic learners and great listeners. They loved the weather videos and the hail experiment.
