Happy New Year, Weatherbrains listeners, and welcome to the Fogbank, keeping Weatherbrains foghorn free for JB.
I'm Dave Phillips. Follow me on Twitter, @skydaver, or Google+, http://gplus.to/Skydaver
The first pick for the New Year comes from the Earth Science Picture of the Day, with two nice examples of virga
The second pick is from the BBC, with a story about lenticular clouds in Yorkshire, England. Apparently, they're not that common in that region. You have to wait past their commercial to see it.
Third, the UK MetOffice @metoffice, posted a time lapse video of the lenticular clouds in Yorkshire
They also posted their cloud information page
Fourth, Jeff Haby at Mississippi State has 'The Ultimate Weather Education Center'
Thanks to Chuck Prevatte for that pick.
Finally, I have "The Snow Booklet", from Colorado State University Dept. of Atmospheric Studies
