On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited students to teach them about severe weather in Colorado.

First, she visited the kindergarteners at the Pikes Peak School and Expeditionary Learning. The students were curious learners and great listeners.

Then she went to Academy International Elementary to visit the kindergarteners there. The students were excited to learn today and were a great audience.

The kindergarteners loved learning the weather dance today in addition to learning how to be safe during winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods.
