Harvey Leonard is retiring after 50 years.  Hank spoke with Harvey about his love of weather, his legendary career as a meteorologist in New England and what comes next.  Harvey also shared that, it’s not your imagination, it is getting windier.  “If you look at the average wind speed over the course of the year it may not be higher than it used to be BUT if you look at the number of big high end wind events that is increasing.  This really plays into part of climate change, more weather extremes, more heavy precipitation events, more droughts on the other side of the equation.  The oceans are getting a little bit warmer and that provides more energy for these Nor’Easters,  blizzards   and hurricanes.”
