This week, we introduce our new full-time Panelist to the
show. He's been Chief Meteorologist for FOX23 in Tulsa
Oklahoma for over 12 years. James Aydelott, welcome aboard!!!
Tonight's Guest WeatherBrain is a guest suggestion.
He's a professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the
University of Nebraska. He is also the director of TORUS (Targeted
Observations by Radars and UAS of Supercells), where he quite
literally flies in the face of storms, seeking the reasons some
supercell thunderstorms generate tornadoes while others do not.
His project, a collaboration with the University of Colorado,
NOAA and the University of Oklahoma, includes manned aircraft,
fixed wing drones and on-the-ground instruments mounted in SUVs.
His goal is to improve forecasting and increase public safety by
reducing false alarms. He is in the midst of a research season, the
first since COVID, where for the first time his group will provide
real-time data to National Weather Service meteorologists for their
forecasts. He attended Texas A&M for his undergraduate
studies and attended the University of Illinois for his phD.
Dr. Adam Houston, welcome to the show!
