This week, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited with students in Colorado Springs to teach them about severe weather and how to stay safe.

First, she met with Mrs. Fromuth's 3rd-grade class at Fremont Elementary, then she met with Ms. O'Brien's 2nd-grade class from West Elementary, and finally she spoke with the 3rd graders in Ms. Hudgins's class at French Elementary.

All the students had great questions and were very enthusiastic about learning about all things weather.
