For most of us, warm sunny days have been hard to come by this summer.  We talk with area meteorologists about why we're having such a period of stormy and soggy weather this season.  And we also get an explainer on how such weather works, and how to forecast it.  Our guests include Jay Shafer, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Lyndon State College, Eye on the Sky's Mark Breen, who is senior meteorologist at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, and Andy Nash, Chief Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Burlington.


Music clips heard in this program:

"Who'll Stop the Rain?" Creedence Clearwater Revival

"Singing in the Rain," Gene Kelly

"Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down," the Carpenters

"Here Comes the Rain Again," the Eurhythmics

"Blame It On the Rain," Milli Vanilli
