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 posted a video calling for the following areas to BE PREPARED for Thursday, February 4th.

  • Davenport
  • Des Moines
  • Cedar Rapids

He says we're looking at freezing rain, drifting snow, high winds.

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.

Even the weather apps wait for his prediction before they alert us. This alert came in 15 minutes after Frankie shared his video.
