July 18 Fog Bank

Hello Weather Brains listeners, and welcome to the Fog Bank

I apologize for the technical glitches at the start of the last few Fog Bank recordings; they were entirely my fault. In computer terms, we had a PEBKAC, which I'll explain on the blog. (It means Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair)

Let's start out with something not directly weather related. James has talked about Google+, and how it might change things. This pick is a user written user manual on Google+

My second pick is Derecho facts, from the NWS SPC

Third, an article on Evapotranspiration, from The Weather Channel
I thought NC was humid, but I can't remember seeing dewpoints in the 80s

My fourth pick is the Warning Siren FAQ from NWS, Quad Cities IA/IL, sent via Twitter by @newton21989
Quad Cities is the term for Davenport and Bettendorf (in Iowa) and Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline (in Illinois)

Finally, a link to Naval Research Laboratory Monterey Marine Meteorology Division
Shows current invests and tropical systems.  It seems to be a realtime system, so depending upon when you look at it, there may not be much of interest. I first looked at it on Sunday, July 17, when Tropical Storm Bret was just  the Atlantic Invest 98L .

Send me your picks to put into the Fogbank, @Skydaver on Twitter

(I'll also figure out how to put in clickable links, it doesn't look difficult at all, but it's not going to get done tonight)
