Now, that was some heat...and what the heck is a derecho?

Climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois discuss last week's withering heat indexes and barrage of storms, the devastating derecho that impacted parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, a record-setting severe weather parameter, the 32nd anniversary of the Storm of the Century, and warmer and unsettled weather towards the end of this week.

You can catch Kenny presenting “But it was cold last week!” And other sins against climatology at the Bryant-Lake Bowl in Minneapolis this Saturday (July 27) at 7 p.m. More information is available here.
