Joining us once again for this episode of WeatherBrains is Dr. Marshall Shepherd from the University of Georgia.

Dr. Shepherd was a guest panelist on episode 572 and guest WeatherBrain on episode 628.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 111 at Death Valley, CA. & Ocotillo Wells, CA, and 21 at Stanley, ID
  • Three hurricanes in the Atlantic
  • Florence threatening landfall in the Carolinas as major hurricane
  • Isaac to move into Caribbean
  • Helene to stay at sea
  • Another storm to affect Hawaii (Olivia)
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer is getting set for the potential impact of Florence on her area, so no email tonight.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: This week we take a look at one of the reasons you never turn your back on the ocean. They are called sneaker waves and for a very good reason. Sometimes when the ocean looks tranquil it can change quickly.
