WeatherBrains Episode 394 is now online (August 12, 2013). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Tonight’s episode is the brainchild of listener Daniel from Ontario, Canada. He proposed that we look at things from a student’s perspective and suggested tonight’s first Guest WeatherBrain.

Our first Guest WeatherBrain is a student in Professional and Broadcast Meteorology at Mississippi State University. She is also on camera at WCBI in Columbus, MS, her third on air job. She is active in the National Weather Association and is an avid runner. She hails from Covington, LA. Shelby Latino, welcome to WeatherBrains!

Tonight’s other Guest WeatherBrain is also a student at Mississippi State in the Meteorology Program. Scott Martin lives in Birmingham, AL, with his wife, Amy, and their three beautiful kids. He is also active in the local NWA Chapter and is a SKYWARN spotter.

Joining us tonight as guest panelist are Aubrey Urbanowicz and Ryan Stinnett.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 113 at Death Valley, CA, and 32 at Stanley, ID
