Episode #158: Open Line Friday For February 26, 2021

Today, I highlight one call from my WeatherJazz Podcast Audience Coinnect Line (234-525-5888) that sure sounds like Gabe Spiegel to me. The question deals with my mustache!

Then, a clip from WKJA, Heartfelt Radio from this morning. Mark Zimmerman interviewed Wayne Shepherd about the interview he gave me for his syndicated radio program, First Person.

Here is “First Person” with Wayne Shepherd:

Episode #157: The Weather On Mars

What is the weather like on Mars? What are the similarities and differences between earth and Mars? With the recent successful landing of the NASA Martian rover, Perseverance, many people have asked these questions and more. Let’s explore as well as listen to NASA’s Mission Control audio as Perseverance made it’s landing attempt. The actual HD video of the landing from the probe’s cameras can be watched on my show notes at WeatherJazz.com, Episode #157.

Episode #156: A Kinder, Gentler Pattern

Wow… it’s amazing how much nicer “normal temperatures” feel like after being pummeled with almost three weeks of arctic air! Until yesterday (Sunday), the last time we experienced a 32°F high temperature was briefly on February 12th and all the way back to on February 5th. The medium and long range “teleconnections” are now pointing to a return to the progressive pattern with only a few modest pushes of cold air into the Great Lakes. Here’s a 10-day animation showing surface temperature anomalies (red = warmer than normal; blue = colder than normal).

Up to this point, we’ve been at or (mostly) below normal since February began.

Warmer temperatures and stronger south winds have fractured the ice on Lake Erie. As of Monday morning, Lake Erie ice coverage is forecast to drop from 81% today to 70% by this weekend.

Here are some of the other graphics I make reference to in today’s episode of WeatherJazz®

Episode #155: Open Line Friday for February 19

It’s Open Line Friday! I have a listener question about the conditions that precede the development of windshield frost on vehicles in the morning. I’ll also continue my conversation with meteorologist Jeff Kennedy, formerly from KWWL-7, Waterloo, Iowa, about his cat Tubby (photo below) along with Jeff’s fascinating faith journey that parallel’s mine in so many ways. (If you ever have any questions about the Good News that God has made available to us, feel free to email me anytime at weatherjazz@yahoo.com).

Jeff’s cat Tubby.

Here is the “:evolution of the cold” 1-week animation about which I spoke during the discussion about the unusual cold:

Episode #154: Bracing For A BIG Snowfall

It’s a crazy busy start to the week so we will not waste any time and dive right in to the upcoming storm details for NEOhio. We will be in the highest impact zone for heavy snow Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Here are the forecast maps to which I made reference on this episode.

Here are the snow photos from Houston this morning:

And Jeff Kennedy’s photos from Sunday (first image) and Monday morning (second image):

Episode #153: Heartfelt Radio

One year ago on February 14th, a new radio station powered up in the greater Cleveland area. WKJA, 91.9 FM started serving NEOhio. Those of you who live in Ohio are likely aware of the friendly voice of Mark Zimmerman. He and co-host Gabrielle Speaks host the morning program (5:30 AM to 9:00 AM Eastern US time, M-F). We had a wonderful “happy anniversary” segment on the air this morning, so I thought it would be fun to re-release that segment that aired at 8:30 AM this morning for Open Line Friday!

Episode #152: The Skywarn Program

While most of NEOhio looks out the window and makes plans to enjoy the wintry weather, Freddie Zeigler from the National Weather Service Cleveland office is preparing for spring and summer severe weather season. He is coordinating the Skywarn program that will train anyone who is interested how to spot and report weather issues as we approach severe thunderstorm season.

Here are some of the links that Freddie talked about during today’s podcast:

Episode #151: Current Cold Stretch

So far, every single day in the month of February has come in with below normal temperatures. Is that typical? How much longer will it last? Plus, Utquiagvik (formerly known as Barrow, Alaksa) has set a new barometric pressure record.

Here are the Twitter tweets I mentioned in today’s podcast:
