There's a reason why Frankie MacDonald has over a quarter million followers on YouTube. Nobody (and I do mean nobody) can deliver a weather alert with as much urgency and excitement as Frankie. Here's his take on the winter storm that's heading into the Midwest as we speak.

As always, Frankie has been kind enough to provide a translation if you were having a hard time keeping up:

Major Storm is on its way for Missouri on Thursday December 22, 2022 and it will bring a lot of Snow and Winds will be really Strong and it will start in Kansas city on Wednesday December 21, 2022 During Evening hours and it will Hit Jefferson city St. Louis Springfield and Seymour Missouri and it will bring Blowing and Drifting Snow and it will Cause Dangerous and Treacherous Driving Conditions and Streets Roads Highways and Interstate Highways will Be Snow Covered and it will Cause Snow Drifts and Blowing snow and Extremely cold weather is Behind the Storm and it will be a lot of Snow in Missouri. People in Missouri Be Prepared. Have your Winter Boots Winter Jackets Hats Gloves Scarfs and Ski Pants Ready. Order your Pizzas and Chinese Food and Buy Cases of Pepsi and Coke. Do your Grocery Shopping Don't Wait until the Last Minute Do it Right Now.

Take Care and Stay Safe and Don't Get Caught in the Major Storm. Stay warm and Be Safe.

Frankie is a big proponent of charging up phones and stocking up on pizza before winter weather events begin. It's worth noting that Frankie's warning happened a couple days ago on his live stream while the current National Weather Service forecast now only calls for 1 to 3 inches of snow, but wind chills are expected to be extremely dangerous perhaps as low as -35 below zero.

Frankie's not wrong about taking this storm seriously and it's always a good idea to have phones charged up and a good stock of pizza no matter what the weather's doing.
