Chief Meteorologist Hutch Johnson for his KVLY 5 p.m. weather report each week has invited a “Scheels Weather Kid” to assist him.
This past Thursday was 9-year-old William Hallman’s turn and after watching his suave hand gestures to the map and honest responses about the weather, you’re bound to want someone like him give your report everyday.
At one point the official meteorologist asks Hallman if he sees anything snow on the radar. His perfect response: “I see, it’s just a normal map” (a.k.a. no snow).

The astute 9-year-old notes that it is snowing “in the Great Lakes area from Chicago to Toronto.”
At one point when describing the rainy conditions in the southeast, Hallman is doing such a great job, Johnson asks if he has done this before.
