This week the WeatherBrains gang returns to their respective cubby holes wondering if there will ever be another WeatherBrains Live!

Bill Murray is on the road, James Spann is in the television station, JB Elliott is in his home office, Brian Peters is somewhere, and who knows where Dr. Tim or Kevin Selle are?

And Bill Murray is live from the 35th Annual National Weather Association meeting in Tucson, AZ. Bill has lined up a number of folks for this show including Betsy King, Steve Harned, Steve Zubrick, Nick Walker, John Scala, and John Gordon.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • JB’s lunch included interesting food combos!
  • Relatively quiet weather across much of the US except Southwest US
  • Warnings in Southwest US
  • Some snow in Sierra Nevada Mountains
  • Dry weather in Southeast with “no burn” orders in Louisiana and Alabama
  • 100 at Jila Bend, AZ, and 21 in Grayland, Michigan
  • Tropics still fairly active though no named storms currently active.
  • and more!
  • The audience is on the edge of their seats! Will our EMO appear? Where has he been? What is all the mystery? Will he have the mail bag under control. Sorry, you’ve got to listen to find out the answer to all these riveting questions.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101:About a year ago, WeatherBrains 101 discussed the Beaufort Scale. So delving a bit deeper this episode focuses on Sir Francis Beaufort, the creator of the scale, and who he was.
