WeatherBrains 609: It’s Complicated!

WeatherBrains Episode 609 is now online (September 17, 2017). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

In what may become one of the longest WeatherBrains episodes ever, guests are going to be prolific as several of the WeatherBrains, including Bill, Rick, Kim, and Brian, are at the 42nd annual meeting of the National Weather Association (NWA). Guests in this episode include Pat Spoden, Greg Carbin (WPC Washington), Greg Stumpf Norman, OK), Jeff Logsdon (SOO NWS Northern Indiana), Bill Bunting (SPC Norman, OK), Daniel Nietfeld (NOAA Office of Atmospheric Research, Boulder, CO), and Matt Solum (Western Region, Salt Lake City, UT). Background audio or noise that you hear comes from a special NWA session called the Ron, Research and Operations Nexus, which brings together operational and research folks in the weather enterprise, a platform for exchanging ideas and promoting innovation.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 105 at Death Valley, CA, and 21 at Hohnholz Ranch, CO
  • Maria was just upgraded before the show to a cat 5
  • Small area of enhanced severe risk in eastern Dakotas and western Minnesota
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is still on vacation or some clandestine venture in California, so the emails will be summarized later.
