WeatherBrains 122: Active Weather / Casual Chat

WeatherBrains Episode 122 is now online (May 26, 2008). The netcast audio program for people who really love weather.

Our show sponsor is Stratus Station. Stratus Station has the best combination of equipment for live views of the weather with fully functional cameras with a complete weather station.

JB Elliott, James Spann, and Brian Peters chat about the active weather. Due to vacation plans (“vacations are for sissies!”) this show was recorded on Thursday evening, May 22nd, for posting on May 26. Snow was expected in the west and severe storms produced another fatality in Colorado. The National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center released their seasonal outlook for the 2008 hurricane season. The Canadian Hurricane Service described the outlook as “alarmist.” And the good ole GFS – Global Forecast System model – provides us with plenty to talk about with a long range forecast that includes a tropical system during the first few days of June.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: Our atmosphere! That’s the topic for this week. This segment looks into the composition of the air. And isn’t it interesting that water vapor only comprises about 1 percent of the air, but that element is the one that gets most of the attention from meteorologists.

Listener SurveyListener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you.
