Today, meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students across Colorado Springs to teach them about how to stay safe during Colorado's different kinds of severe weather. This included learning about winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash floods.

First, she spoke with the 4th and 5th graders at GLOBE Charter School. The students were very excited and enthusiastic!

Then, she met with 3rd graders at Stratton Elementary and the students were great listeners and had good questions. They put together a 7-day forecast, predicting this week's weather.

And she wrapped up the day at Chipeta Elementary where she spoke with the 3rd graders. The students were awesome at listening and were whiz kids with the 7-day forecast activity.
