Sunday's wet snowfall added an interesting dimension to an otherwise cold, raw, rainy Mother's day. We are starting to close some of the rainfall gap since January 1. We'll explore the latest numbers in light of a dry week ahead. And we'll talk about the Ki-NetX rocket launch expected tonight from Wallop's Island, Virginia and how some of us might be able to see it! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support

Meteorologist André Bernier discusses the physics that "shapes" Earth's raindrops nand how the same physics may do the same in other parts of the universe!

You will discover why in this episode along with the Cliff Notes version of the history of windmills. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Meteorologist Scott Sabol joins me to examine the nuances of the 2021 Summer Outlook, not only for the Ohio Valley, but for the entire USA! (Apologies up front - regarding the sound quality on the Zoom call interview with Scott. I have some new high-end equipment that needs to be properly interfaced with Zoom. While you can easily enjoy everything discussed, it does not live up to my high audio quality standards. Rest assured, I'm working on it diligently!

Thankfully, a great snowfall year for the USA's ski season helped to limit the financial damage done by the COVID-19 situation, but suffice to say, most areas suffered financial loss. Let's take a closer look at nearby Vermont thanks to a story from VTDigger.com back on April 6th. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Let's look back at the "goofy" month of April to discover that it really wasn't as "normal" as some of the numbers suggest.

Let's have some FUN today by heading to the WeatherJazz® Podcast Audience Connect Line where the audience shared creative ways that they dealt with and/or remembered late-season snowfalls. Also, I'll share my segment on WKJA-FM 91.9 (Heartfelt Radio) this morning when I shared a rather unique Friday music request. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support

It may be a beautiful Monday morning, but a late-season snowy system threatens to make life challenging in the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. Let's explore the details in Episode #179. My plan is to release a special Tuesday edition of WeatherJazz® tomorrow with FOX 8 morning meteorologist Scott Sabol as details of the next snowy system come into better focus. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Today's Open Line episode is the concluding episode on Little Free Libraries. Today, we visit with the caretaker of a LFL that is as far north as anyone can go in the eastern USA, a town called Fort Kent, Maine. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Flying a helicopter drone on Mars is no easy task! The most important hurdle to clear is the fact that the Martian atmosphere is very, very, very thin compared to Earth's rich, life-giving atmosphere. Jaakko Karras is a robotics electrical engineer with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and he joined me for this episode of WeatherJazz® to talk about all the special nuances NASA needed to address in order to make a helicopter flight on Mars possible. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
This is the time of year when cool-cold cut-off low pressure systems frequently pay NEOhio a visit. These systems look like giant, glazed cinnamon buns on the visible satellite images! Because they move slowly, the cool, showery pattern typically lasts 1-2+ days. Check out the image on my show notes for this episode on WeatherJazz.com.  It's just one of the topics covered in today's Meteorological Monday episode, along with what to expect for the reminder of the month of April. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support

What would happen if you took your home barometer and brought it to the surface of every solar system planet? This was the question I found myself asking after reading about the new Martian drone whose blades will have to spin far faster to get the lift it needs to become airborne.

WeatherJazz® is a podcast in constant motion forward! I'm always trying to take it to the next level. Enter "MRC.fm" from near London. Mike and Isabella Russell have a fabulous weekly LIVE YouTube show called Free Jingle Friday. Last Friday, I jumped into their sphere of influence by hiring them to make me a "Meteorological Monday" audio stinger. Watching them make my jingle was so much fun! The video is in my show notes for Episode #173 at WeatherJazz.com. It has been a crazy start to April. From record snows to record quiet, I examine some of the memorable stats so far along with what is ahead in the next few weeks across the USA. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
In 2009, the first "Little Free Library" was born in rural Wisconsin. That was only twelve years ago. Since then, the number of LFLs has increased to over 100,000 with 108 countries represented! Let's get to know Cathy Stang, the caretaker of one of northeast Ohio's LFL's located near a Cleveland-area elementary school. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Today is a historic science day for Chatham, Massachusetts. At 8:00 AM EDT, a weather balloon was launched for the last time at that location. The reason, however, is NOT because we no longer need the data.

March is likely the strangest month in NEOhio. It can be very warm at times. It can be cold and snowy at times. It can be thundery. It can be delightfully quiet, too. The next 17 days is no exception, as we will see. Plus, a trip to the highest summit of Vermont reveals a definitive trend for the winter of 2020-2021. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/andrebernier/support
Here is a personal Palm Sunday reflection that has little to do with weather or science, but rather things that are far more important in the grand scheme of things.
