Fog Bank, Nov. 21, 2011

Hello, Weatherbrains listeners, and welcome to the Fogbank, keeping Weatherbrains foghorn free for JB.
I'm Dave Phillips, I'm on Twitter, @skydaver, and Google+,

My first pick is from the US Geological Service, a set of Google Earth files for  stream data, refreshed every hour.

Next, WB listener Dan Goff, @wxdan, gets a mention in a Richmond VA Times Dispatch article about the Virginia Tech Meteorology major

My third pick is from NASA Jet Propulsion Labs, SciJinks, a website with lots of educational links

Fourth, NOAA Climate Services has a discussion of the flooding in the Missouri river valley earlier this spring

Chuck Prevatte, @chuck006, sent in a link from Accuweather about new storm hunter aircraft
I'm not going to spoil it.

I'll be traveling all week, and won't have a chance to record a Fogbank in time for the show.  I may have one posted on next Tuesday.

Thanks for listening, Skydaver Out!

Fog Bank, November 14, 2011

Apologies for being so late with this week's Fogbank.
You can find me on Twitter, @skydaver, or on Google+,

Help me keep Weatherbrains fog horn free for JB Elliott.  Send me interesting weather stuff, and I'll put it into the Fog Bank (or send it to JB)

First up,  an animated gif from the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies
 showing the development of a rare tropical cyclone in the Mediterranean Sea
This storm beat the heck out of the Volvo Ocean 70s trying to get to the Atlantic from Alicente, Spain.  One boat broke open its bow, another broke its mast.
The Twitter handle for CIMSS @CIMSS_Satellite

Brad Panovich posted his winter outlook for the Carolinas in his blog.

The NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory (I think I'd been calling it Earth Visualization) has this picture of the Bering Straight Storm

Some pictures of the rain gauge that I setup to participate in COCORAHS

Along with the rain gauge,  WeatherYourWay (suppliers of the COCORAHS gauge) sent some nice posters along with the gauge
