Monday, ABC 33/40 meteorologist James Spann visited third-graders at Oneonta Elementary. During his hour-long visit, Spann spoke with the students about weather and climate in general as well as severe weather and how to recognize it. He then told students about safety during severe weather events. In addition, Spann informed the students how he does the weather forecast and brought along some of the tools he uses on the air.
Spann’s visit was initiated in late 2021 when third-graders began studying weather through their science curriculum.
