Way Over Our Heads podcast: The 2010s was a wild decade for Minnesota weather

Raise your hand if you remember all of the 70-degree days in March 2012.

A lot can happen in a decade, and that is certainly the case for the weather Minnesota experienced 2010-19, and those events, including the March heat wave of 2012 and the tornadoes of June 2010, are a big part of the latest Way Over Our Heads podcast with climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois. 

The podcast, which focuses on Minnesota weather and climate, also remembers the January 1975 Super Bowl "Storm of the Century," in addition to discussing the devastating Australian wildfires that are generating an unusual meteorological phenomenon.
