Special Episode: Bosart–Uccellini Presidents' Day Storm conversation (MWR 150)

February 24, 2022

As part of our celebration of 150 years of Monthly Weather Review, we are sharing a wonderful conversation between Lance Bosart, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric & Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany, State University of New York, and Louis Uccellini, recently retired director of the National Weather Service, about their seminal research around the Presidents' Day Cyclone of 1979, which sparked a lot of debate on extratropical cyclone development. This conversation was moderated by the Monthly Weather Review's Chief Editor David Schultz, and recorded in front of a live audience at the University at Albany on 17 November 2021. A very special thanks to Professor Emeritus Vince Idone for recording this conversation. Learn more about Monthly Weather Review's 150th Anniversary celebration at
