Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with students virtually and in-person to speak about severe weather in Colorado and how to stay safe.
First, she met virtually with Ms. Di Stasio's 2nd-grade class from Sierra Vista Elementary in Pueblo West. The students had great questions at the end and they learned the weather dance.
Then she went to Scott Elementary to meet with Ms. Digman's 3rd graders. They were very enthusiastic about learning and created their own 7-day forecast.
