What to look for on Smart Talk Tuesday, June 5, 2018:

Whether we realize it or not, most of us get into a conversation about the weather every single day -- even if it's just small talk when greeting someone. Let's face it -- what happens outside influences what we do and how we live -- a lot.

Not surprisingly then, many of us have questions and our own theories about the weather. Tuesday's Smart Talk will be devoted to answering your questions about "the weather," as we all seem to refer to it.

Lately, many of us have asked, "When will it stop raining?"  There were 11 straight days of rain in the middle of May and it was one of the wettest Mays in years.  There was rain every weekend in May.  It continued last Friday night in some areas where more than four inches of rainfall was recorded that led to flash flooding.  The forecast for this week actually calls for a few days of sunshine but then more showers later in the week.

Temperatures were above normal in May too -- topping out at 90 degrees on May 26.

So what's behind this weather pattern and when will it end? 

Those are just a few of the short-term weather questions we'll have for meteorologist Eric Horst, Director of Millersville University's Weather Information Center on Tuesday's Smart Talk.

We'll pose a lot of more them and take your questions too.
