EL PASO, Texas-- Christmas came early for 6-year-old Avery. She spent her Saturday morning at the KVIA studios fulfilling her dream of becoming a meteorologist!

Avery has been fascinated with weather since she was 5-years-old and according to her parents she's always the one to warn family members about potential weather threats headed their way.
