The 9NEWS weather team loves that the storm is on MacDonald’s radar.

"I love his passion. I think that’s what people love about it right?” 9NEWS meteorologist Kylie Bearse said. “When you see someone that's so incredibly passionate, I mean he goes and finds the biggest winter storms that are happening and just delivers it in a way that people just love."

The storm MacDonald's forecasting is expected to hit Denver between Wednesday and Thursday, and according to MacDonald, it’s going to be massive.

“People in Denver, Colorado, be prepared!” he said.
