On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited the 3rd graders at Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain, CO.

Today's presentation was about severe weather in Colorado and how to be prepared. The students learned about winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, flash floods, and wildfires.

They were great listeners and had a blast watching the weather videos and watching the hail experiment.
