WeatherBrains 629: Didn’t Come From Ikea

WeatherBrains Episode 629 is now online (February 5, 2018). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

The WeatherBrains podcast has been stricken by the flu outbreak going on across the country. Our guest for this episode has come down with the flu, so he has been rescheduled for February 19th. So we go to plan B – a homegrown show featuring Kim Klockow-McClain discussing a talk at the recent AMS conference that she was involved with. As James says, “It could be one of the greatest shows ever.”

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 89 at Thermal, CA, and -22 at Black River Falls, WI
  • Thunderstorms across Lower Mississippi River Valley on Tuesday
  • Thunderstorms from SE Texas to srn South Carolina on Wednesday
  • Cold across North Central US
  • Warm along the Western US
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer dips into the mailbag to handle the incoming messages from our listeners.
