    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!"

    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?
