WeatherBrains 650: Reverting to Drugs

WeatherBrains Episode 650 is now online (July 2, 2018). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Joining us as Guest WeatherBrains this week we have Ariel Cohen and Ryan Bunker from NWS Topeka, KS. Ariel is the Science and Operations Officer (SOO) at WFO Topeka. They bring a whole host of additional people to the show. They will be discussing the topic of mentorship and career advancement.

Kevin Selle invited Aubrey’s partner in crime while in Norman last week to the show, so joining us from WOOD-TV, Grand Rapids, as our Guest Panelist we have Ellen Bacca.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 119 at Death Valley, CA, and 31 at Leadville, CO
  • Westerlies pushed north along US/Canadian border
  • Severe weather west of Great Lakes next couple of days
  • Hot in Southwest US and along coast from VA to ME
  • Highest drought conditions in Southwest US
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer has been off seeing the world in Norman, OK, so we’ll see what happens with the email basket tonight.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: A WeatherBrains listener sent in a question about a term he heard in a forecast discussion. The term was baroclinic so this episode tries to provide some definition for our listeners.
