Today’s blizzard could be one of the most intense winter storms in Boston’s history. There’s a lot to talk about — state preparedness, road conditions, forecasts, how the blizzard might interrupt the food supply, the science of meteorology, and how storms can bring out the best in people, even in the worst weather conditions.

We’ll have special coverage of the big winter storm slamming the city, talking with reporters, meteorologists, and interesting voices from around the region.

Guests

Mark Rosenthal, meteorologist.

Kerry Emanuel, professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
