Yale Climate Connections meteorologist Jeff Masters, PhD, a co-founder of Weather Underground and YCC “Eye on the Storm” blogger, will speak and answer questions in a 60-minute online webinar focusing on this year's weather extremes:  A one-off or a harbinger of atmospheric warming-driven times to come?

A prolific author and one of the country’s most highly respected meteorologists and weather/climate change communicators, Masters will analyze extreme weather events in a historical context and discuss how the increasingly bizarre and troubling weather of the 21st century poses a grave threat to an infrastructure designed for a 20th century climate. He will take questions from the webinar audience, many of whom have loyally followed his and associate Bob Henson’s weather and climate analyses for years.
