Let's talk about the weather (and space, of course)
People in the path of Hurricane Ian are still dealing with its aftermath.
Before and during the storm, residents rely on forecasts from meteorologists to track the storm and plan to prepare. Many of the tools these forecasters use come from space.
We’ll chat with meteorology professor Rob Eicher about the space-based tools forecasters use to predict the severity and path of storms like Ian.
