Local weatherman has hilarious on air meltdown after coworkers complain about forecast once too much

One fed-up Michigan meteorologist let loose like a winter snowstorm Tuesday after his coworkers complained about his weather report AGAIN.

“You guys are dragging me down. Every time I get done with the seven-day (forecast), you guys are like, ‘Ughhh, goshh, ahhh,'” Grand Rapids station WXMI meteorologist Garry Frank said live on air after his coworkers started whining again about Michigan’s blistering cold weather.

“Doesn’t matter what time I come on. 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, and then you expect me to be chipper for five straight hours. It’s miserable. What do you want me to do, lie to you? I’ll put 70 every day next time,” he added.

Tell us how you really feel!

No worries, because his coworkers took his rant with good humor. So did the rest of America, which quickly elevated Frank to hero status for his willingness to keep it oh so real with us:


Frank’s coworkers had a point, though. The forecast for Grand Rapids has been cold, windy and rainy/snowy for days. And according to the latest forecasts, the weather isn’t apt to get better anytime soon:

Who would want to live like that, especially in April? Brrrrrrrr!

Even good ol’ Frank admitted in an interview later in the week with BuzzFeed that it’s been unnaturally cold lately.

“I mean we get that it’s Michigan and it’s not uncommon for this, but it seems like every time we have warmed up, it gets cold again,” he said.

He’s just trying to do his job. Give a guy a break!

“So people keep asking me about the warm up and such. But the anchors and everyone always reacted the SAME way all week. I mentioned a couple of warm days and they STILL focused on the cold after,” he said to BuzzFeed.


The good news is that he’s loving the aftermath of his rant.

“[A] lot of people said they laughed til they cried or this brightened their day and that’s all I ever wanted from this for being silly for a minute,” he said. “It’s just what we do on the show. When you wake up at 2:00 a.m. every day, you have to entertain yourself at the very least. Keeps us awake.”

I don’t know about making Frank our next president, but I would definitely vote to name him the entertainer of the year!
