As we make the next seasonal switch — from sun to, yes, drizzle — we’re spending an hour talking about the peculiarities and mysteries of Northwest weather with Cliff Mass, the University of Washington atmospheric scientist who has written the book on it.
We’ll talk about how climate change is likely to affect daily life in the coming decades. And how we can all become savvier cloud readers and weather predictors. As well as some practical questions for the coming winter: how cold, and how wet, might it be? (This weekend’s meeting of the Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society might produce some answers as well.)
What would you like to know from one of the region’s most prominent weather experts? What meteorological phenomena have flummoxed you? What are your best Northwest weather stories?
