Episode #093: The Max-Min Spread

Posted by on December 12, 2019 at 6:09 pm

During my weathercast prep time today, I saw the difference between the normal high and normal low here in Cleveland, Ohio was 12°F.

Episode #092: For Spacious Skies Part 1

Posted by on November 27, 2019 at 6:26 pm

While the North American pattern becomes very active, I thought it would be the perfect time to run a vintage episode from Season 1 of WeatherJazz since there is so much happening in our sky. In 2012, I interviewed former WBZ-TV reporter, Jack Borden, who started a non-profit foundation dedicated to awakening the awareness of […]

Wow… what an exit from October and into November! Only hours after hitting 65°F at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, the season’s first snowflakes started to fly.

NASA recently announced that it has discovered 20 new moons orbiting the planet Saturn. That brings the Saturn moon count to 82… which now means that Saturn (and not Jupiter) has the most known moons orbiting the planet. Would you like to help name the new moons? I’ll share the rules and the procedure on […]
