If there's one thing we know, it's that if Frankie MacDonald is telling you to be prepared, you better be prepared. In the years we've been following him, the kid's never gotten a single prediction wrong, and even has predicted something as unpredictable as a volcano.

Frankie just uploaded his latest forecast for a MAJOR winter storm headed for Iowa on January 1st, 2022.

He's calling for us to get 6-12 inches of snow.

The following areas will be affected:

  • Quad Cities
  • Cedar Rapids
  • Des Moines

"It's going to bring a lot of snow. Winds are going to be really strong, which will cause dangerous and treacherous driving conditions," Frankie says.

Frankie doesn't give an exact amount to expect, but in our experience, he usually doesn't post a video unless we're looking at more than 6", or just dangerous conditions all around.

"Have your winter boots and hats and scarves ready, and make sure your smartphones are charged.

When you're driving, take your time so you don't get in an accident.

Drink lots of green tea, red tea, white tea to keep warm.

Everyone living in Iowa, BE PREPARED for a major winter storm on Saturday, January 1st, 2022.
