Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students in Colorado Springs to teach them about the types of severe weather that Colorado experiences and how to be safe from them. They discussed winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods.

First, she met with the 2nd graders at Bricker Elementary in Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Fix's classes. They were awesome listeners and they had great questions at the end.

Then she visited the 5th graders at Pikes Peak Elementary in Mrs. Goodwin and Mr. Steele's classes. The 5th graders listened well and they did a wonderful job creating their own forecast for the next 7 days.
