They can cancel school, shut down airports and the big ones can even paralyze cities for days…winter storms track all across the country ever year. They are complicated weather systems where details of temperature structure, pockets of dry air and subtle bands of intense snowfall make all the difference between a few flurries and feet of snow. University of Wisconsin – Madison professors Dr. Jon Martin and Dr. Michael Morgan join us today to discuss why winter storms behave the way they do, how we can understand them better and how a shrinking cold pole in the northern hemisphere might alter these storms in the near future. Get ready weather geek fans…we are really going to roll up our sleeves and get into the details of winter storms!
