WeatherBrains Episode 380 is now online (May 5, 2013). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Tim BallistyOur guest WeatherBrain was supposed to be Tim Ballisty, Editorial Meteorologist for The Weather Channel. However, due to technical difficulties, we were unable to connect with Tim via Google+.

The result is an open show with lots of banter among the WeatherBrains gang!

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 93 at Entiat, WA, and 23 at Stanley, ID
  • Cold core upper low over Southeast US brought cold weather
  • and more!
  • Our email bag officer is continuing to handle the incoming messages from our listeners.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: We’re coming up on the start of a couple of different weather season. June first is the start of the hurricane season for the Atlantic Basin. And with the start of the summer months, we also enter the primary lightning season. So this week we take a look at an often studied, fascinating aspect of nature – lightning.
