On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited students in Colorado Springs to teach them about the weather and how to stay safe in dangerous conditions.

First, she met with the 3rd graders in Mrs. Schall's class and Ms. Firkin's class at D11's King Elementary in Colorado Springs. The students were awesome listeners today.

Then, she met virtually with the 3rd graders in Mrs. Mldozik's class at Freedom Elementary in Colorado Springs. The students had great questions at the end of the presentation.
