Hello, WeatherBrains listeners, welcome to the Fog Bank, keeping Weatherbrains fog horn free for JB.
Send me your picks here, or on Twitter, where I'm @Skydaver.
Last year, the National Hurricane Center published a proposal on a minor change in wind speeds for various categories of hurricanes. For this season, that proposal has been put in place.
The second pick is an amateur photo of the plumes from the ATREX jetstream experiment
Third is an amazing depiction, in real time, of the winds in the US. It takes a while to load, so be patient. It probably should be viewed in Chrome.
