WeatherBrains 196: AM Weather Memories

WeatherBrains Episode 196 is now online (Oct. 26, 2009). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!


AM Weather - 1995This week, it’s a fond look back at one of the best weather television shows ever: PBS’s AM Weather from the 70s and 80s.

  • Bill Murray’s summary of the 2009 NWA Convention
  • We have a new e-mail intro!

    Great Show. The AM Weather crew really brought back some memories. Also great links this time. Love the link to the Special Episode of AM Weather. I nave to show that one to my currently weather crazed son. As for Dr. Tim, keep up the good work. Your essay is fabulous. My response to people who complain about global Warming is “If it wasn’t for Global Warming, we would still be in an ice age.”

    You were talking about the Discovery channel show Storm Chasers at the end of the show,. I have these observation about it. First, it has given me a opportunity to have good discussions with my kids about sever weather and with my son, who is 8 now, in particular. He had a bad experience with severs weather and a tornado event when we lived in Atlanta. Storm Chasers has let me explain to him what the truths are about tornadoes and severs thunderstorms.

    On a side note I would like to thank ya’ll for making me look like the smartest person at Spotter training a few weeks ago when I was able to recite the new standard for a severe thunderstorms and when it would take affect.

    Love the show, keep up the good work.
