WeatherBrains 145: Storm Pulse a Plus

WeatherBrains Episode 145 is now online (November 3, 2008). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Our special guests tonight come from Storm Pulse, Matthew Wensing and Brad Wiemerslage. They’ve created a great hurricane tracking site. Matthew resides in South Florida while Brad lives in Chicago, and their interest in weather got them into developing the site. The site does a great job of presenting a full site of hurricane information. Matthew describes how they got into it and their goals for the future of the site including some of the requests they’ve gotten.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • weather and politics – what a mix!!
  • Dr. Coleman gives a few notes on the AMS Severe Weather Conference in Savannah, GA
  • with a note on a food spot – Paula Deens
  • forecasting lightning comments
  • discussing variations in severe weather from the Central Plains to the Southeast
  • a look at the Nation’s weather
  • and more!
  • Our mail bag has been getting some attention and Kevin puts it in perspective.

    From The Weather Center:

    Three body scatter as seen on BMX radarWeatherBrains 101: Spikes, spikes, spikes. Did you know that radar has more than one kind of spike? Yup, they do. Last week it was sunrise/sunset spikes, but there’s also hail spikes or more technically called Three Body Scatter. Ye olde professor takes a look at this aspect of radar.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of November 4th. And a tragic week it was in a rather beautiful location when heavy rain overloaded an earthen dam in Northeast Georgia with dire consequences.
