On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited schools in Pueblo to teach students about the types of severe weather that impact Colorado.
First, she went to Bradford Elementary to speak to the preschoolers in Mrs. Ayalla's class. The students were excited to watch the weather videos and share what they know about the weather.
Then, she met with the kindergartners in Mrs. Bragazzi's class at the Pueblo School for the Arts and Sciences - Fulton Heights Campus. The students had a lot of great questions for Alex and they loved the weather dance.
