Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 93 at Lake Forest, CA, and -28 at Embarrass, MN

  • Very dry in Oklahoma; drought getting worse
  • 4-year anniversary of snowmageddon

  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is back from Mexico, so she catches up on the incoming messages from our listeners.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: The topic for this week is a foehn wind. Heat bursts were a favorite of JB Elliott, and these winds are often responsible for melting a bunch of snow.
