Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students in Pueblo county to teach them about winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods.

First, she met with the 2nd graders at Prairie Winds Elementary in Pueblo West. Their mascot is the Twisters! The students were great listeners and had well-thought-out questions for Alex. They learned the weather dance today.

Then, she met with the students in the life skills classroom at Pleasant View Middle School in Pueblo. The students enjoyed the weather videos and they created their own 7-day forecast. The students are encouraged to observe the weather this week to see if their forecast validates!
