On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met virtually with Colorado Springs elementary students to talk about severe weather.

Mrs. Cano's 3rd grade class from Scott Elementary, Mrs. Fatianow-Hibbitts 5th grade class from Keller Elementary, and Mrs. Mlodzik's 3rd grade class from Freedom Elementary.

All the classes had great questions after the presentation. The 3rd graders loved to learn the weather dance. Mrs. Hibbitt's class had a homemade barometer in their classroom that showed the cold front from Tuesday!
