Sinopsis

WeatherHype is a podcast about weather, climate, and how it affects you. It is hosted by two besties who love weather and its connections to people every single day. We wanted to provide an avenue where we could talk about important weather-related stories and educate listeners in a very informal, unstructured way, all while getting a little side-tracked and having some fun too!

    07/01/2020

    It's a new season of WeatherHype, and that means it's time for another American Meteorological Society conference! As the weather enterprise gears up for one of the largest conferences in our discipline, we thought it would be fun to talk about some of our previous experiences, provide some tips/tricks for attending the conference, and help first time attendees understand what to expect. On this new episode of season 5, we are breaking down all the hidden knowledge about the AMS Conference and giving listeners a refresher on what they can expect at the American Meteorological Society's 100th Annual Meeting.

    Episode 61: You Are What You Tweet: How the NWS Communicates Using Twitter

    29/10/2019

    We've talked about weather and social media a number of times on WeatherHype, but we wanted to shift gears just a bit and talk about social media and how the weather enterprise uses it. We've seen social networks change and evolve over time. And so have organizations like the National Weather Service in terms of how they take to platforms like Facebook and Twitter to communicate weather and climate information. Today we're taking a little deeper dive into how the National Weather Service uses Twitter. We're also looking at specific examples of how they present information and discuss best practices and what's effective when it comes to social media messaging to the public.

    Episode 59: It Goes Both Ways: Connecting Research and Practice (w/ Drs. Joe Trainor and Scott Miles)

    06/08/2019

    The disaster and natural hazard communities are made up of many moving parts and people that play different roles. Two prominent roles are “the researcher” and “the practitioner.” However, to successfully implement new-found knowledge into practice and to further investigate some of the practical challenges that practitioners face, researchers and practitioners must work together. That’s where Impact360 Alliance can help out. Impact 360 Alliance, which was previously known as the Alliance for Integrative Approaches to Extreme Environmental Events, strives to help researchers and practitioners establish connections, build relationships, and co-create innovative solutions together. On this week’s episode of WeatherHype, we are joined by Dr. Joe Trainor - Director of the Disaster Science and Management Program at the University of Delaware and the Chair of the Impact360 Steering Committee as well as Dr. Scott Miles - the Director of Impact360 Alliance to talk about the importance of building and maintaining rese

    Episode 58: Can You Find Yourself on a Map?

    25/06/2019

    Because a majority of our weather information heavily relies on the use of maps and other geographic information, meteorologists are always asking: can people find themselves on a map? This week’s episode of Weather Hype is inspired by a fireside chat that broadcast meteorologist James Spann had a few of months ago. During this discussion, James asks a great question: Can people simply not understand maps? On this episode of Weather Hype, we dig deeper into this question as we search for alternative perspectives to this perception that people cannot find themselves on a map. We examine James Spann’s fireside chat, take a closer look at some of the studies that he cites, and consider an alternative perspective offered by Kim Klockow-McClain in a recent Washington Post article. That and more on this week’s episode of WeatherHype. A podcast where we talk about weather, climate, and how it affects you. So, stay tuned, because WeatherHype is coming up next!

    Episode 57: Be the #WxTwitter You Want to Be (w/ Dakota Smith and Becky DePodwin)

    23/05/2019

    #WxTwitter. It's a fascinating social media community made up of meteorologists, weather enthusiasts and people who just want to talk about all things weather. WxTwitter is a space for collaborative ideas, sharing weather photos and videos and networking. But like any community, there was bound to be disagreements in opinion and clashing of ideas. We had an episode dedicated to WxTwitter a couple years ago exploring this online community. Now we're looking at how this niche social media world has evolved, and some of the benefits and challenges it presents to the social fabric of meteorology, especially with our next generation of meteorologists. We're joined by Becky DePodwin and Dakota Smith, two people who are very active and very familiar with the wonderful world of WxTwitter. In a candid and honest conversation, we'll dive into our own experiences on the digital platform and look at ways we can successfully coexist while bringing out the best in each other.

    Episode 56: Lions and Tigers and Typhoons, Oh My!

    28/03/2019

    In October of 2018, Super Typhoon Yutu, packing winds of 180 mph, slammed into Saipan, the largest island of the Northern Mariana Islands. And in it's wake, complete destruction. We talk with April Lipinski, who works with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. And she was in Saipan after the island and other parts of the commonwealth were left reeling from the devastating impacts of the storm. While April and her team were working to help the people of Saipan, there was an interesting rumor that came about... a rumor that there might be animals in need of help And with the help of several agencies and organizations, the gears were put in place to rescue these animals from Saipan. We also talk with Pat Craig, the executive director of the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado where Tasha and Lambert were taken after the storm. On episode 56 of WeatherHype, our second episode for 2019's National Weather Podcast Month, we talk with April and Pat about the recovery process for Saipan immediately after

    Episode 55: Haters Gonna Hate: Defending Meteorology and Forecasting

    05/03/2019

    You know, as a meteorologist, did you know you can be right half the time but still have a job. The amount of times we all hear that, am I right? There's no doubt public perception of weather and weather forecasting isn't always great. And with many meteorologists and forecasters in the spotlight, the hate messages can be downright hurtful, and that can take a terrible mental toll on those who work so hard to predict the weather. But, many on-air personalities have had enough, and they're fighting back. That was meteorologist James Spann at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama. He reads mean tweets sent in by listeners. And in this case, his viewers are complaining about his winter weather forecast earlier this year. He's not the only one. Meteorologist Heather Waldman from WGRZ in Buffalo, New York is also defending forecasting, using a more educational approach. More and more meteorology professionals are taking to social media and the airwaves to fight back against haters and trollers. And we examine that on t

  • Episode 54: The Real Impacts of a New Hurricane Scale

    Episode 54: The Real Impacts of a New Hurricane Scale

    17/01/2019

    Currently, the weather community uses the Saffir-Simpson scale to communicate potential property damage due to hurricane force winds. At its core, the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is a 1 to 5 rating based on a hurricane’s sustained wind speed. However, recently the weather community has begun to question whether categorizing hurricanes based solely on their wind speed can effectively communicate the multitude of hazards that often accompany tropical weather. To address this concern, AccuWeather recently announced on January 9th at the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting that they will be using a new AccuWeather RealImpact Scale for Hurricanes starting in 2019. Although a much needed step in our community and a topic we have been discussing for years, meteorologists are asking: is it too soon to put this new RealImpact Scale into practice? To answer this question, we will dive deep into the AccuWeather RealImpact Scale, discuss the positives and negatives that accompany such a drastic change

    19/12/2018

    It's been a few months since Castle and Minh were able to record an episode of WeatherHype together, so obviously there's going to be a bit of shenanigans in this episode. In addition to everyone's favorite "Song of the Week" segment, we have some cool gift ideas for the weather person in your life, a few organizations that we will be giving to this holiday season, and lots of other weird things...because, well, it's us.

    13/11/2018

    Impostor Syndrome is the psychological phenomenon in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud. Despite evidence of their accomplishments, most individuals attribute their success to luck, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent than they perceive themselves to be. Have you ever had feelings like this? Ever felt overwhelmed in your job or in school? Ever feel like it is extremely difficult to balance your personal identity with your work identity? Well you are not alone! Today, we are joined by Katie Wedemeyer-Stombel, who is happiest in the ocean, loves to bake, and enjoys hanging out with her dog and husband. But, she’s also a PhD Candidate at the University of Texas-El Paso - remember it’s important to balance your work and life, but we’ll get to that later. We are incredibly excited to have her on the show, as she has become a champion and incredible advocate for graduate students everywhere. She o

    Episode 50: Florence Recap: Communication Challenges and Successes

    25/09/2018

    As Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday, September 14th near Wrightsville, NC, meteorologists were forecasting that roughly 10 million gallons of rainfall would impact North Carolina and the surrounding states. You heard me right - 10 million gallons! To try and put that into perspective, that is enough to fill 15 million Olympic size swimming pools, 36 thousand Empire State buildings, and 60 million Washington Memorials. How can we even communicate something that is so hard to imagine? Join us as we talk all about the communication challenges and successes that took place during Hurricane Florence. From the use of the term "weakening," to the debates surrounding the Saffir-Simpson scale. We have it all on this episode of WeatherHype!

    Doppler radar technology is easily accessible, and we often see if on our local news, on our weather apps, and on websites. But do people know how to properly use radars to access weather conditions? Do people find radars to be useful for their day-to-day activities? We talk with Michelle Saunders, a PhD candidate at the University of South Florida, who's looking into these questions and ideas. Plus, we talk to one person who's never really used a radar before (my roomie) and sit down for a one-on-one about her perceptions, thoughts, and interpretation of radar on her smartphone app. That and more on this week's episode!

  • Episode 47: A Weather Communication Perspective on the Duck Boat Tragedy

    Episode 47: A Weather Communication Perspective on the Duck Boat Tragedy

    23/07/2018

    A tragic accident involving an amphibious vehicle commonly known as a duck boat has claimed the lives of 17 people including nine members of one family. It happened on Table Rock Lake near the tourist town of Branson, Missouri as two different duck boats carrying dozens of passengers were hit by a severe thunderstorm on the evening of July 19, 2018. While one boat was able to make it to shore safely, the other boat carrying 31 people unfortunately capsized, with 17 people losing their lives. Here’s what Jim Pattison Jr, the president of Ripley Entertainment who owns the duck boat company said during a interview with CBS This Morning: “to the best of our knowledge, there was a fast-moving storm that came out of nowhere." His quote has received a lot of criticism from meteorologists and the weather community. On this episode of Weather Hype, we breakdown the duck boat tragedy from a weather communication perspective and ask: Was this accident preventable? Did the duck boat company actually receive information a
