WeatherBrains 493: Numerous Assets

WeatherBrains Episode 493 is now online (July 6, 2015). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain is a show Alum, having appeared on show 314 back in January 2012 when he was the MIC at the NWS in Atlanta. He has since served as the Deputy Chief of the Warning Research & Development Division and now serves as the Deputy Chief of the National Severe Storms Laboratory. Lans Rothfusz, welcome to WeatherBrains!

WeatherBrains 101: Weather observations include a variety of weather data including information about the amount of clouds and cloud height. Sometimes that height can have special meaning when you get to the first broken or overcast layer. This height has a special name, too, called the ceiling height which is out topic for this episode.

Listener SurveyListener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the Listener Survey. The survey takes just a minute or two to complete and provides us with an opportunity to learn where you are and hear your thoughts and comments on the show. Click here to take the survey.
