Fog Bank, March 26, 2012
Hello, WeatherBrains listeners, welcome to the Fog Bank, keeping Weatherbrains fog horn free for JB.
Jesse Ferrell of Accuweather has interesting stuff in his blog, weathermatrix. On March 15, he shows radar ducting picking up echoes off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge tunnel.
If you ever get tired of Aurora pictures, stop listening to the Fog Bank. Astronomy Picture of the Day has a very nice one, from Iceland, taken March 17, 2012
