WeatherBrains 309: Confused JB Dancing Naked

WeatherBrains Episode 309 is now online (December 26, 2011). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!


Greg Carbin, WCM, SPC, Norman, OKThere’s only one way to end the year like we’ve had in the US. And that’s with Greg Carbin, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction, Storm Prediction Center (SPC) in Norman, Oklahoma. Since 1996, Greg has performed as a severe weather outlook forecaster, fire weather forecaster, mesoscale meteorologist and lead forecaster at the SPC. Prior to starting his career with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1993, Greg worked in the private sector in New York and Vermont. He earned a B.S. degree in Meteorology from Lyndon State College in 1985 and has completed some graduate course work at the University of Oklahoma while an employee of the NWS.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes were 83 at Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, FL, and 4 below at Bryce Canyon and Ryndon, UT
  • 50 inches of snow in some locations in Alaska
  • Heavy snow in Rockies
  • New Mexico under winter weather advisories of some sort for all counties
  • and more!

Our email bag gets a bit of attention even on a short schedule of episodes.
