Episode #080: Voyager 1 & 2

Posted by on July 26, 2019 at 6:06 pm

I was preparing to start my college career in northeastern Vermont when NASA launched both the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 deep space probes over 40 years ago. Amazingly, those space probes (which are outside of our solar system) continue to communicate to Earth. The signal from each probe takes almost 24 hours to reach […]

Episode #079: Beyond Tropical

With the heatwave now expanding eastward, I noticed some heat index and dew point numbers that raised my eyebrows. How is it that some of the dew point reports were reaching the unfathomable mid 80s? There’s a good reason and I’ll elaborate in tonight’s edition of WeatherJazz.

So far, Cleveland has only witnessed ONE 90-degree day thus far. That was on May 25th when we hit 92°F. After that, a chilly and very rainy pattern developed leaving the masses asking if summer would ever “get going?” The atmosphere gave us some hope this week that the cool and rainy pattern has shifted, […]

We are now approaching the longest day of the year, the summer solstice (June 21 at 11:54 AM Eastern Time). It’s the season of long daylight periods and short nights. Upon closer examination, the earliest sunrise period does NOT coincide with the latest sunset period. Why is that? Let’s explore, and talk about the summer […]

Meteorologist Michael Joyce from FOX 45 in Dayton, Ohio is my special guest tonight to talk about the Monday tornado outbreak in the Dayton area. I have a special bond with Michael because he was one of my summer interns at WJW-TV, FOX 8 in Cleveland about eight years ago when he was a meteorology […]

Yes, I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks. For those wondering what I’ve been up to, this is a catch-up episode to let you know what my wife and I were doing since the last episode. That leads me to asking every young student and important question as they navigate trying to figure out […]
