(Newser) – Jim Kosek of AccuWeather.com doesn't like to give boring forecasts, so when he braced Baltimore for the first of its recent storms, he let it all hang out. The result has drawn nearly 900,000 views on YouTube. "This is Al Roker meets Sam Kinison," writes Eric Athas of the Washington Post. "Samuel L. Jackson's five-day forecast. Chris Matthews on a Starbucks jag. Howard Dean post-Iowa caucuses—but with live Doppler radar." And, of course, Kosek has a Facebook fan page. Check out the video in the gallery.
