What's Up With The Weather?

In January the mercury reached 74 degrees in Boston, and here on the Cape and Islands we've had multiple days with temperatures in the 50's. While we can't point to warm winter days as evidence of climate change, we can look at trends and patterns to put what we're experiencing into context. Joining us to discuss weather, climate change, and the complexity of climate modeling and forecasting are David Coe, Ph.D. student at UMass Lowell Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, and Tyler Harrington, Masters student at UMass Lowell Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences. Steve Junker hosts.

Steve is Managing Editor of News. He came to WCAI in 2007. He also hosts the weekly News Roundup on Friday mornings, and produces The Fishing News and Weekend Outlook.
