If you are wondering about the weather ... ask Cliff Mass
KPLU hosts one of the northwest's leading weather experts, University of Washington professor Cliff Mass. Every Friday, Mass talks with KPLU's Bellamy Pailthorp about the weekend weather and the science behind it.
From time to time, they like to answer questions posed by listeners and readers. This page is your place to pose questions.
No guarantees the question you put forth will be answered, but some questions will be read and answered on-air and in the weekly podcast.
Here are some past topics:
- Will La Nina affect this winter's weather? Will it be like last year?
- What does it mean when we get an "Indian Summer" in October?
- Why does black ice go with fog?
- What's the sunniest spot in western Washington?
So, use the comment section below to pose your questions and suggestions for Mass and Seinfeld. (These questions go way back, so at the beginning of the comments, you can select "Sort from newest to oldest.")
