WeatherBrains 645: Distribute the Hordes

| May 30, 2018 @ 6:19 am

WeatherBrains Episode 645 is now online (May 29, 2018). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

The first named storm of 2018 is now in the books, so we’re going to be talking with two experts in the area of tropical weather, Max Mayfield, left, and Bryan Norcross, right.

These two hurricane specialists currently work for WPLG in Fort Lauderdale. They both need no introduction. Max Mayfield, former Director of the National Hurricane Center, and Bryan Norcross, Mr. Hurricane who appeared on the show a few months ago when his book came out.

Max was unable to get connected to the hangout.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 111 at Death Valley, CA, and 28 at Leadville, CO
  • Alberto developed in SE Gulf and moved north through Alabama
  • Humongous flooding in Ellicott City, MD
  • 4 lightning deaths in US this year
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is back to handle the incoming messages from our listeners.

WeatherBrains 101: In this edition of 101 we take a look at the dry line. Dry lines are quite common along the eastern slopes of the Rockies but fairly rare east of the Mississippi.
