Allan Hawco, most recognized from his lead role as "Jake Doyle" on the CBC hit TV series, "Republic of Doyle" made a special guest visit to The Weather Network on Wednesday.

Being a Newfoundlander himself, it was only natural that we put his weather skills to the test, especially with a large system currently hitting the province.

From a weather briefing to presenting a forecast in front of the green screen, Hawco certainly proved he's a man of many talents.

Here's a look at our visit with the star:

The weather briefing begins...


"I'm ready for this!"


Deep in thought while getting the latest on Newfoundland's storm


Allan had Chris Mei in fits of laughter


Meteorologist Gina Ressler trying to keep things under control


Suzanne Leonard snaps a pic


The last look before hitting the studio...you ready?


It's like a whole new world in front of the green screen


Allan: Is this where we look for the script? 

Chris: There is no script. 

Allan: So how do you know what to say?

Chris: That 15 minutes we just spent with the meteorologist, that's my script for the weather story I'm about to tell. 


Mike Arsenault stops in to say "hello" 


Still trying to get over this no script thing!


The camera is on and he's a natural


Thumbs up for Allan's fellow Newfoundlanders


Allan: I'm assuming that big L on the map is not for love?


Chris Mei, are you trying to flex your biceps?


The roles are reversed. Allan tests Chris on Newfoundland weather terms


Digital writer Andrea Bagley asks about his craziest weather experience...


...Hmmmm?!!


Looking right at home. A future in weather for Mr. Hawco?
