Garry Frank is a meteorologist at 5 On Your Side in St. Louis, Missouri.

His enjoyment of meteorology came at a young age from watching the storms roll in on the other side of the state in his hometown of Kansas City.

Shortly after graduating from the University of Missouri in 2010, Garry took a position as chief meteorologist in Yuma, Arizona. Shockingly, there wasn't a lot going on in the desert weather-wise, so in 2015 he chose the opposite of the desert and went to Grand Rapids, Michigan as the morning meteorologist.

During Garry's four years in Michigan, he met a lot of great people as part of a really fun morning show. One of those people may be familiar to you. That station is where he met his wife, 5 On Your Side meteorologist Tracy Hinson. They were married in October 2021 after many years of living apart.

Garry spent three years working at WDAF in Kansas City and really enjoyed being in his hometown with family and friends, but he's very excited that he doesn't have to drive across Interstate 70 anymore, except for holidays and special occasions.

Forecasting winter weather is Garry's favorite aspect of weather coverage because of the specific challenges just one or two degrees creates in forecasting snowfall and other types of wintry precipitation.

That doesn't mean he is wishing for winter weather all the time, though! In his spare time, Garry likes to play golf when he is not doing farm chores. He looks forward to exploring more of the St. Louis area now that he lives here full time.
