Question: With this latest massive Midwest snowstorm and the classic "comma shape" of this huge low pressure system, I've often wondered on what exactly is going on at the center of circulation? Can it affect how you feel physically just from a low pressure standpoint and not the weather it generates all round it? — T. Sykes
Question: You said on the news Thursday that the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic would be open on Monday, increasing the chance of rain. If the moisture is coming from the ocean, why isn't the rain salty? — Larry Price
Question: If barometric pressure is the weight of the atmosphere pressing down at a particular point... why is this pressure lower during a time when the air is full of moisture? Seems the opposite should be true. — Tony Helms
Question: Why does barometric pressure make my rheumatoid arthritis hurt more? — Cindy
Question: 06-26-2012 ... I was awakened by the storms that rolled through at night...they didn't appear so bad. But when I reviewed the 8 hour radar loop afterward it revealed that they moved almost due North to due South. Being a WRAL weather enthusiast for many years, am I wrong in thinking this was highly unusual? — Greg Miller
Question: After watching your forecasts and seeing weather systems pass us by and swirl on off, usually to the north and east, it made me wonder...do they just circle around the globe and come back again, either in a lesser or greater state? Are they the same highs and lows that just keep circling around the globe, or do they play out at some point? — Sharon
Question: The sharply colder weather coming in tonight with a cold front seems to have all the normal characteristics of a cold front (clear weather, dropping dew point, etc.) except that winds remain strong from the Southwest. This has happened at least one other time in the recent month. I thought cold fronts normally had winds from NW or NE. — Dave Crotts
Question: Can you explain Mb and pressure? — Bill
