Our favorite forecaster, Frankie McDonald, is back and his latest forecast is finally not overly hyped -- Frankie is spot on finally. Take his warning seriously today, the weather is treacherous!

Frankie McDonald has a special gift of forecasting weather all over the world for his many YouTube fans. His goal is to save the world and keep people safe as he studies weather forecasts from his location in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Most of the time his forecasts are a little over-the-top and not quite as bad as he's talking about. However, his forecast for today is actually spot on and should be taken just as serious as he's saying.

I'm not sure that stocking up on cases of "Pepsi" and "Coke" are needed, as we're not going to be home bound by any means, but he IS correct about the possibility of up to 12 inches of snow.

One thing I noticed that he said in this forecast, was the conversion of centimeters-to-feet. Thank you Frankie! Most of us in the U.S. don't measure snow fall in centimeters, so the conversion saved us time from having to think too much!

Keep yourself safe today, as the weather is going to be brutal. We'll be sure and give you a more 'local' forecast all day today from right here in central Minnesota.
