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.
