On an unseasonably warm day in February, WSB-TV meteorologist Katie Walls and Davis Academy first-graders gather near the weather gauge attached to the red fence behind the Lower School fields at the Sandy Springs campus.

WSB-TV (Channel 2) meteorologist Katie Walls visited Davis Academy first- and third-graders Tuesday, Feb. 2, to speak about weather, weather safety, and the importance of a data project the students are participating in.
