On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien spoke with students in Colorado about severe weather in Colorado and how to stay safe.

First, she met with the 2nd graders at D11's King Elementary in Mrs. Decker and Mrs. Bales' classes. The students were great listeners and loved the weather dance!

Then, she spoke with the 3/4 graders at McAuliffe Elementary in Mrs. Fink's class. The students were so much fun and they created their own 7-day forecast.
