WeatherBrains 625: You Can Only Touch it with One Finger!

| January 9, 2018 @ 8:58 am

WeatherBrains Episode 625 is now online (January 8, 2018). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

No specific guests this episode, but we have several of the WeatherBrains gang at the AMS 98th conference being held in Austin, TX. We had hopes of having some of them join in the discussion, but the massive meeting seems to have put an obstacle in the plans.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 80 at Tuscon (Davis Monthan AFB), NH, and -1 at Frenchville, ME
  • Not as cold as last week
  • But more cold coming next weekend
  • Total lunar eclipse at the end of January
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer gets a shot at the incoming messages from our listeners.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: Last week there was a huge brouhaha over the term bomb cyclone used to describe the huge winter storm that impacted the coast of the Northeast US. It even attracted the attention of the skit writers for the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. So we dive into what a bomb is and how they come about. Checkout the pick of the week from Professor Peters for a look at the humor over the use of the terminology.
