| April 17, 2012 @ 2:30 am

WeatherBrains Episode 325 is now online (April 16, 2012). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

This is probably the biggest group of guests we’ve ever had on one WeatherBrains show. Joining us as guest panelists are Mike Wilhelm and John Brown. They are avid weather enthusiasts and took to the Central Plains during the recent high risk day for some fascinating storm chasing.

Also joining us will be special guest, Dave Freeman from KSN in Wichita, KS.

And rounding out the guest WeatherBrains will be Greg Carbin, WCM at SPC, Jim Stefkovich, MIC of WFO Birmingham, and Alan Gerard, MIC of WFO Jackson, MS. The main topic for discussion with our guest WeatherBrains will be forecasting the April 27, 2011, tornado outbreak.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 10 at Sunshine, WY, and 93 at Westfield, MA, and Quantico MCAS, VA
  • and more!
  • Our email officer dips into the bag and summarizes the incoming.
