Get Ready For Winter!

Our Thanksgiving period was largely quiet and near normal temperature-wise, but the weather rumors we’ve been spinning are pointing to a significant pattern change. But here’s the question: Is this cold punch coming in going to set the pace for December or is this just a quick shot of cold air and snow? FOX 8 weekday morning meteorologist Scott Sabol and I discussed the pattern shift on this episode.

Meet Iceland’s Biggest Pop Star!

This episode has been almost two years in the making and will likely be one of my very favorite for years to come. About two winters ago, I heard a song on FM95.7 in Reykjavik, Iceland, that piqued my attention. I instantly loved it and scrambled fast to “Shazam” it. The song was by popular Icelandic music artist, Jón Jónsson, called Með þér:

Jón (pronounced “yon” in Icelandic) and I connected soon after, looking for a moment when we could both find a window of time when we could record an episode of WeatherJazz®. Jón earned a degree in economics from Boston University in 2009 and I was curious about his impressions of our east coast, maritime climate compared to Iceland. However, we spent much of our time talking about his successful music career. It’s my prediction that by the end of this episode, you too will be a Jón Jónsson fan!

Here is some additional material, including a video of the impromptu song Jón Jónsson sang for us from his home in Iceland (via Zoom):

Planetary Targets

With stunningly clear skies since late last week, seeing some fun astronomical objects has been easy! Jupiter and Saturn are low in the SW sky until they set around 9 p.m. (click on the image to see a larger version).

Mars is now rising high in the SE sky just after twilight fades! It’s very bright still, and has a rusty color to it.

Slow Recovery

Do you remember the derecho that slammed Iowa in August?

Cedar Rapids was particularly hard hit. The nation outside Iowa hasn’t heard much from there since. Does that mean they have recovered? Hardly!

Join me and FOX 8’s Lou Maglio as he describes what he saw in Cedar Rapids just a week ago on my latest podcast episode (#127):

Morning Fog

At this time of year, morning river valley fog is common and easy to see on the visible satellite image once the sun comes up!

This is what it looked like as we approached the lunch hour when the fog was gone:
