WeatherBrains 689: John’s Cuckoo

WeatherBrains Episode 689 is now online (April 1, 2019). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Tonight’s WeatherBrains is a special show regarding the NWS’s Hazard Simplification Program or “Haz Simp”.  This program has been around for a couple of years and is designed to potentially redesign and reinvigorate the National Weather Service Watch/Warning/Advisory system.

Our Guest WeatherBrain this week is a Social Science Researcher and Project Manager for Haz Simp along with Eli Jacks of the NWS.  Her background is in meteorology, but her PhD program is interdisciplinary with a focus on sociology of disasters and risk communication.  Danielle Nagele, welcome to WeatherBrains!

Guest Panelist this week is soon-to-be graduating meteorology student from the University of Oklahoma.  Jordan Overton, welcome to the show!

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Are “certain death” messages counter-productive?
  • Why can’t the general public find their house on a map?
  • Kim’s analysis on the March 3rd, 2019 F4 tornado in Lee County AL
  • The Astronomy Report from Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is continuing to handle the incoming messages from our listeners.
