On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students in Colorado Springs to teach them about the types of severe weather Colorado sees.

First, she spoke with all of the 5th graders at Chipeta Elementary. They were great listeners and had good questions for Alex.

Then she met with the 2nd graders at Mark Twain Elementary. They completed their own 7-day forecast for the week ahead. The students were very enthusiastic and they all participated in the presentation today.
