OK, so our headline was a little dramatic. But, once you see little Charlie Hale in action, you'll understand why WGN-TV's meteorologist may be fearing for his job.

"Let's get down to business. ... Well, it looks like we have some snow in Wisconsin. Rain going into Indiana and leaving Illinois. Wow, we got a lot of snow in Canada. ... Sunshine is on Saturday, yay! Low is 43, boooo."

Pretty good, right? Before they got "down to business," Charlie even showed off some dance moves.

The kid was so good, Fox's Steve Doocy was warning his show's meteorologist she better be prepared:

STEVE DOOCY VIA FOX NEWS: "Look out, Maria Molina, a second grader is coming for your job!"

CHARLIE HALE VIA WGN-TV: "I've never been on TV before."



The Huffington Post gave a nod of approval too, saying Charlie "absolutely" dominated. 

But, turns out meteorologists can breathe a sigh of relief. Charlie said he wants to be a police officer when he grows up because he "loves danger." Livin' on the edge, Charlie. Livin' on the edge. 

"Let's get down to business."
