New Podcast Episode

We have a brand new Northwest Weather Podcast episode posted for your listening pleasure!  Click here to check it out!

This week, Brian and Mark explain the heat wave scorching most of the U.S. and why we’re staying so cool in the Pacific Northwest.

They also talk about the anniversary of the coldest temperature ever recorded on earth and other extreme weather across the world.

Plus, the guys welcome their boss to the show, Executive News Director Corey Hanson.  Corey gives us insight on how things work behind the scenes, and they play a game of “It’s Okay, It’s Not Okay, or You’re Fired.”
