WeatherBrains Episode 502 is now online (August 31, 2015). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Our special guests this week are Paul Suffern and Brian Soper. They bring a wealth of knowledge on aviation weather which is our topic of this show.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 112 at Death Valley, CA, and 27 at Island Park, ID
  • Three Hurricanes in the Pacific and struggling Fred in the Atlantic
  • And Fred has degenerated to a tropical storm
  • Weather somewhat calm with no severe weather risks
  • Hot weather developing for the Central US
  • Astronomy Outlook with Tony Rice
  • and more!

Our email bag officer has been shirking her duties, so she’ll try to catch up on the messages from our listeners.

From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: This episode wraps up our look at storm surge by taking a look at the vulnerability of the United States. And the level of vulnerability may be surprising to many.
