Why don’t we ever seem to see rainbows at high noon? There’s a great reason for that! Let’s explore the relationship between the sun angle and rainbows in today’s episode of WeatherJazz®.

Episode #118: Your Favorite Season

I’ve been able to expand this podcast into a new chapter by setting up a WeatherJazz® Audience Connect line. In order to “test” it, I asked my audience to call in to tell me what their favorite season is and to explain why. The volume of calls was so amazing, that I had to pull a random sampling of calls to share with you. Additionally, we’ll look at Lake Erie’s surface water temperature trace so far, and I’ll expand on the desert southwest heat records set in the last week or so.

Episode #112: Summer In Tromsø, Norway

Tromsø is Norway’s 4th largest city and it is well inside of Earth’s Arctic Circle at almost 70° North latitude. That means Tromsø experiences perpetual sunshine during the summertime. In addition to being home to a research university, there is quite an influx of tourists since Tromsø is so accessible by auto, ship, or aircraft. What is life like in Tromsø in the summer? Let’s ask someone who lives there in today’s episode of WeatherJazz®.
