#076: 90-Degree Days

Posted by on June 26, 2019 at 8:03 pm

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, […]

#074: The Days Of Light

Posted by on June 12, 2019 at 8:03 pm

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 […]

I received a great question on the WeatherJazz┬« Hotline from a listener in Medina, Ohio regarding weather modification and it’s potential usefulness in mitigating damage from tropical storms and hurricanes. In order to best understand weather modification efforts, it’s best to look back at attempts to do so in the last 50 years or so. […]

#070: Summer Outlook

Posted by on April 26, 2019 at 8:24 pm

The two seasons with the highest degree (did you get the pun, there?) of interest in terms of the long-range, seasonal outlook is winter and summer. It makes perfect sense since these are the two extremes of the year. With June, July, and August (the meteorological summer of 2019) right around the corner, it’s time […]

#069: Just a Way Of Life

Posted by on April 19, 2019 at 9:24 pm

Caribou, Maine continues to establish a new record with every new morning this April. The record? They have now experienced the longest continuous stretch of measuring at least one inch of snow. As of today (Good Friday), that stretch is 161 days. See how I placed the peak snow depth of 45″ into perspective: I […]

#068: Maine’s New Record

Posted by on April 17, 2019 at 8:49 pm

Can you imagine 160 continuous days with at least one inch of snow covering the ground? No need to imagine anymore. Caribou Maine not only broke the old record, but SMASHED it… and they are still many days away before they officially kiss the snow cover goodbye. Let’s talk about that (and I’m working on […]
