WeatherBrains 307: JB Upchucks

| December 13, 2011 @ 1:55 am

WeatherBrains Episode 307 is now online (December 12, 2011). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

It’s another round table discussion for the WeatherBrains crew discussing topics for some big Weather Ready Nation event that Bill Murray will be attending. So who knows where this episode will lead with all microphones open! And James does get to chip in now that his voice is back!

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • USA Extremes – 11 below at west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and 82 in Florida at several stations
  • Snow a big story especially in Southwest US
  • Freezing rain in Upper Peninsula of Michigan
  • and more!
  • The mail bag continues to get some attention while the mind blowing Email Officer plugs away at finding a replacement.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: 101 goes out on a slim limb to discuss a temperature scale probably most of you have never heard of. Probably Mr. Spann knows of this scale since he has often been a judge for some chili cook-offs! The slightly off topic this week is the Scoville scale for rating the heat in chili peppers.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of December 13th. Lightning safety in the air is better today thanks to a lightning strike to an aircraft during this week in weather history.
