| June 28, 2017 @ 5:30 am

WeatherBrains Episode 597 is now online (June 26, 2017). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Our Guest WeatherBrain for this episode is Mike Olbinski, a professional photographer and a nut for weather. He claims he likes photography and he has won an Emmy and has had many storm time-lapse and fine art work shown across the world in movies, sports, commercials, documentaries, magazines, websites, and countless other ways. He has a blast shooting weddings year-round, families in the fall/winter/spring, and then he goes nuts chasing storms in the spring and summer. His gallery which you get reach via his web page link below has some awesome pictures.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 125 at Death Valley, CA, and 31 at Gothic, CO
  • SPC slight risk areas across Central US
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Complaining about her workload, our email bag officer is off covering her whole office, so she’ll have a big mail bag when she returns.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: You’ve seen it before. A strong hurricane moves ashore and almost immediately begins to dissipate. So is that the effect of friction? The answer to that question comes in this episode of WeatherBrains 101.
