*A sixth-grader in Hazelwood, MO caught the attention of meteorologists across the country after he gave an effortless weather forecast in a video posted to social media.
In an interview Tuesday with local news outlet “5 On Your Side,” Alvin Kamau said he’s loved weather since he was 6 years old. Last week, he asked his mom, Anne Kamau, to record him giving a forecast using graphics from the Today in St. Louis weather report.
In the video, Alvin talks for more than two minutes like he was born for this. Watch below:
The video was picked up by Vitendo4Africa, a Hazelwood-based nonprofit that helps empower African immigrants. (Alvin was born in the U.S. and his mother is from Kenya.)
During his interview with 5 On Your Side, Alvin gave the weekend forecast, and it was golden. Watch below:
Alvin has his own YouTube channel now where his forecasts are being posted.
