The Powder Buoy Brings Accuracy And Fun To Snowfall Prediction

screen_shot_2020-01-02_at_8.34.46_am.png

Michael Ruzek joins Cool Science Radio. Ruzek is the man behind The Powder Buoy. Financial planner by day and Powder Buoy by night, Michael predicts snow storms in the Wasatch Mountains two weeks in advance by watching NOAA Buoy 51101 off the coast of Kauai. Michael has figured out that when 51101 hits a certain swell height a winter’s storm will hit two weeks later 3000 miles away in Park City, Utah.
