On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien spent the day at South Mesa Elementary in Pueblo, teaching students about being safe during severe weather. All the students today were enthusiastic and great listeners.

First, she met with Mrs. Colleti's English Language Learners. Next, she spoke to the 5th-grade students in Mrs. Haratty's and Mrs. Mooring's classes. Then she met with the 3rd-grade students in Mrs. Pagano's and Mrs. Emery's classes.

All the students created their own 7-day forecast. They are encouraged to observe the weather this week to see if their predictions are correct or if not, see what changed!
