WeatherBrains Episode 487 is now online (May 25, 2015). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you! This is the longest running podcast on weather having been on the air for nearly 10 years.
Tonight’s show will be a little different as we pay tribute to our friend, JB Elliott. JB was a long time mentor for many of the WeatherBrains gang especially our host, James Spann, so it was appropriate to honor him on this Memorial Day.
Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

WeatherBrains 101: This episode of 101 goes off the beaten path just a little to explore something called petrichor. This is a quick explanation about that refreshingly aromatic smell that comes with a light rain after a short dry spell and how it works.
