WeatherBrains 430: It’s in the Can

WeatherBrains Episode 430 is now online (April 21, 2014). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Dr. Louis Uccellini, Director of the NWSYou can’t get much higher in the weather enterprise than tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain. He might well be the most powerful man in weather. He is in charge of the weather service that is the envy of the world. Officially, he is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Assistant Administrator for Weather Services and Director of the National Weather Service. Join us in welcoming Dr. Louis Uccellini to WeatherBrains. Our discussion with Dr. Uccellini actually took place last week in a pre-recorded interview that is airing tonight. As you might imagine, getting the schedule of this man and that of the WeatherBrains crew together was a major undertaking.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 102 at Death Valley, CA, and 15 at Bodie State Park, CA
  • Hurricane Conference going on in Florida
  • Severe weather ongoing in Texas
  • and more!
  • Our email bag officer is on a hot date tonight, so no mail bag segment.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: We’re going to take a look at something that most weather enthusiasts already know something about. NOAA Weather Radio is a nationwide system that provides the baseline for getting severe weather information. So we take a look at some of the basics to weather radio.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of April 20th.
