WeatherBrains 424: Down to Just Sneakers

WeatherBrains Episode 424 is now online (March 10, 2014). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Ryan Stinnett, AlabamaWx MeteorologistTonight’s Guest Panelist is a forecaster for and is the Marketing Meteorologist for the MyWARN service. He is frequently working behind the scenes to get guests hooked up with Google+ and that is the case tonight. He is a graduate of the University of South Alabama and has his Masters from Mississippi State University. He is a National Champion Weather Forecaster. Ryan Stinnett, welcome to the front of the house.

Dr. Josh WurmanAnd tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain needs no introduction to the WeatherBrains audience and nearly anyone who is remotely interested in weather. He has been the Holy Grail of WeatherBrains guests for me and all it took was AlabamaWX forecaster Ryan Stinnett asking him while they were at SECAPS at the University of South Alabama a couple of weeks ago. Special thanks to Ryan! Dr. Josh Wurman is the president and founder of the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, CO.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 88 at Imperial, CA, and Death Valley, CA, & -4 at Mount Washington, NH
  • Beginning to thaw out – Chicago up to 50
  • Snow cover stands at 34 percent
  • Severe weather still limited across the US
  • and more!
  • Our email bag officer was hinder by the weather last week, so look for a double douse of incoming messages from our listeners.
