WeatherBrains 628: I’ll Release Details Later

WeatherBrains Episode 628 is now online (January 29, 2018). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Joining us tonight is Dr. Marshall Shepherd. He needs almost no introduction to our audience as a former President of the AMS and the host of The Weather Channel’s WxGeeks show. Dr. Marshall Shepherd, welcome to WeatherBrains! Dr. Shepherd was a guest panelist on episode 572.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 93 at Lake Forest, CA, and -28 at Embarrass, MN
  • Still cold across north central US
  • Very dry in Oklahoma; drought getting worse
  • 4-year anniversary of snowmageddon
  • Dry in Harrisonburg, too
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is back from Mexico, so she catches up on the incoming messages from our listeners.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: The topic for this week is a foehn wind. Heat bursts were a favorite of JB Elliott, and these winds are often responsible for melting a bunch of snow.

Listener SurveyListener 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.
