DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Freezing temperatures are in the forecast, but we are also at the beginning of severe weather season.

That's why First Alert Meteorologist Andrew Gorton was at Deerfield-Windsor Lower School Wednesday morning.

A group of third graders learned how clouds form, what air masses are and how hurricanes develop.

Students also learned what it takes to have a severe storm and what to do when severe weather strikes South Georgia. 

The meteorology lesson ended with a tour of the WALB storm tracker.

"Some storms I am scared of. If there was a tornado I could go to a closet, a bathroom or my basement," Brantley Michlig.

"It made me feel better because I was one of the people who had a house damaged, and it made me feel better knowing more about it," said Bess Pennington.

If you would like to schedule a school visit from the WALB First Alert Weather Team contact Andrew Gorton.
