On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alan Rose visited with students at Widefield Elementary School and Penrose Elementary School. He spoke with them about the weather in Southern Colorado and how to be Storm Safe.

The students learned about different types of severe weather, including tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding, and winter weather. Everyone had great questions and loved the weather demonstration about hail. Almost everyone knew where to seek safety in a storm and what to do during winter weather.
