Our guest WeatherBrain this week is Dr. Ray Russell from Ray’s Weather from the mountains of North Carolina. He calls Ray’s Weather his hobby gone berserk. Dr. Russell is a Computer Science professor at Appalachian State University. His PhD is in Computer Science from Georgia Tech (1989); weather has been a long-time passion. He started posting a “snow forecast” on the university website back in the mid 1990’s; this evolved into RaysWeather.Com in 2000. Ray lives in Boone and has taught at Appalachian State since 1991.
