I was wondering where Forecaster Frankie was. Sure enough he's back and warning us about one of the largest ever snowstorms to hit Minnesota this week.

We all love Frankie because of his intense seriousness about the weather in different parts of the world.

Yes, he gets some of our city names wrong, like "Minnepalice", but it's OK, he's from Canada eh!

As much as I'm sure that we'll get some snow, it's not going to be 15-27 inches anywhere, and certainly not 6-12 inches in the Twin Cities. Maybe an inch or two by the time it's all done.

He is actually correct about the "real cold temperatures" though. Saturday and Sunday we'll see lows in the single to double digits below zero.
