On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met virtually with students in Fort Carson and Colorado Springs.

First, she met with the 2nd graders at Weikel Elementary School in Ms. Kane, Ms. Colon, Mrs. Oliver, and Mrs. Hatton's classes. They loved the weather dance!

Then she spoke with the 4th graders from Freedom Elementary School in Mr. Haas, Mr. McIntosh, and Mrs. Foster's classes. They had great questions about flash floods and tornadoes.

And finally, she spoke with the 3rd graders at Pikes Peak Elementary who had great guesses on the trivia questions.
