Amateur weatherman Frankie MacDonald should really get a sponsorship deal from Coke, Pepsi and Samsung. I think he's missing the boat on endorsements.

Frankie is back to alert us about a massive snowstorm that is going to hit South Dakota this Friday, February 24.

Frankie says the storm can bring anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow causing whiteout conditions and blowing and drifting snow, especially in Sioux Falls and surrounding areas.

As usual, Frankie tells us how to prepare for the massive storm and since he's giving us so much warning, you'll have plenty of time to think about your Chinese order and go to the grocery store.

According to the National Weather Service, here's an updated forecast and it's starting to look a little more like Frankie's every day.
