David Lynch completely changed television as we know it in the '90s with his quirky, avant-garde Twin Peaks. He's directed some head-scratching masterpieces (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Eraserhead) and a few mainstream hits like The Elephant Man and The Straight Story.

Then there was the beautiful disaster known as Dune.

Now, while Los Angeles is on lockdown, he's doing his part to help his neighbors with a morning weather report, something he's loved doing for years.

Comments on the videos show they have a big following with hard-working good ol' boys like the Boss and Ricky characters.
