WeatherBrains Episode 259 is now online (January 11, 2011). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!
Tonight’s guest panelist, Nate Johnson, is a weather producer/meteorologist at WRAL-TV in Raleigh. He is on a return visit and on a mission tonight.
And our special Guest WeatherBrain is a big man in radar. Mike Gibson has a background in computers as a software design engineer with two decades of experience writing PC applications and operating system software. His primary specialty is graphics and font technology, from the API down to the driver level. He is the inventor or co-inventor in three patents related to that work. Mike is the owner of Gibson Ridge Software, an Atlanta-based company. He developed one of the most widely used radar interpretation programs in the world.
Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:
Our mail bag has been getting some attention and Kevin puts it in perspective.
From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: The Southeast US got hit by a BIG winter weather event just a few days ago, so the topic is freezing rain and what it is.
TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of January 11th. The topic as you might expect for this time of year is the cold! But how about some really high pressure?
