WeatherBrains Episode 357 is now online (November 26, 2012). If you are really nuts about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Dr. Tony LupoTonight’s Guest WeatherBrain is a suggestion of listener Ken Hoglund. He is an alum, having appeared on show number 249 in November, 2010, not one of his greatest claims to fame. He is the Department Chair and Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Missouri. Tonight we welcome Dr. Tony Lupo back to the show.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 87 at Corpus Christi, Killeen, and Junction, TX, and -11 at Fosston, MN
  • Tranquil across the Southeast recently
  • Severe weather threat tonight in Louisiana and East Texas
  • Alaska -36 at Northway
  • and more!

Our email bag officer has come up with a big excuse to turn the reins back to Kevin who is conveniently out (one of those flies!!). So who knows if anyone is handling the mailbag tonight?

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: This week is part two of a three part series on precipitation types. With winter just around the corner and some pretty cold days occurring across the vast fruited plain, it seems appropriate to look into the frozen types. And there are several.

TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of November 26th.
