WeatherBrains 560: Sending Out Investigators
WeatherBrains Episode 560 is now online (October 10, 2016). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!
Tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain was on Episode 416. He needs no introduction to weather fans which is most of our audience. He has worked in hurricane awareness and education since graduating from UNC-Wilmington in 1995. Over the past eighteen years, he has had the privilege of working with local, state and federal agencies to develop award-winning hurricane awareness projects. In addition, his work with business and industry to reach out to communities on a local level has led to several large-scale hurricane preparedness campaigns from Texas to Maine. He is the Founder of HurricaneTrack.com. Mark Sudduth, welcome to WeatherBrains.

From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: This week the 101 episode features somewhat of a mini rant from the professor taking on the topic of landfall or landfalling. It seems this term was used a lot with Matthew and many times it was used improperly, so we take a look at what this term means and how it should be used.
Listener 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.
