WeatherBrains 306: Round and Round

| December 6, 2011 @ 1:50 am

WeatherBrains Episode 306 is now online (December 5, 2011). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

This episode of WeatherBrains features a roundtable with the regular cast of characters. The plan for the show was suggested by listener Doug Deliefde. He wanted to see a show-long roundtable discussion with the regulars talking about where to turn to and trust for severe weather information in this digital wireless age in which we live.

So we have no idea where the spinning table will take us!! I’m sure there will be detours and other side trips!

We do have a guest panelist, Michael Moss, a storm chaser in Indiana and a weather enthusiast.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes – long cold fronts this year
  • Some big rainfall amounts across the US
  • 32 below at West Yellowstone
  • 83 at Fort Myers and Sarasota, FL
  • No severe weather outlook
  • and more!
  • Our mail bag has been getting some attention and Kevin puts it in perspective.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: How about that Earth? This edition of 101 takes a look at what constitutes earth sciences. You probably already can guess that meteorology is one of those. But since there are four, what are the other three? Listen in to hear a tidbit about each one of them.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of December 6th. And this week featured a horrendous weather disaster as a result of fog on I-75 northeast of Chattanooga, TN.
