Hello, Weatherbrains listeners, this is David Phillips, skydaver on Twitter, with the Fog Bank. Please leave a comment so I know you're reading this.

My first pick comes from the NWS office for Baltimore & Washington, who posted an analysis of the June 29 Derecho

Next, I have a discussion of a severe weather policy for MLB, after the events at the Texas game

Third, Mike Francis, Chief Meteorologist for WXIA, Channel 11 in Atlanta, GA, posted a video about outflow boundaries of thunderstorms.

My fourth pick comes from NOAA Weather Partners with a YouTube video on DualPol Radar

Finally, the CIMSS Satellite Blog has an interesting article titled Mesoscale Convective System exhibiting cloud-top gravity waves and transverse banding

Thanks for listening, Skydaver Out!

Fog Bank, July 9, 2012

Hello, Weather Brains listeners, this is the Fog Bank.  I'm Dave Phillips, skydaver on Twitter.  My Google+ link should be available over on the right, too.

The first three picks are all related to the June 29th Derecho.

First, a GOES-East satellite loop

The second pick is from NOAA Weather Partners with a radar composite loop of the event.

And third, Accuweather's Jesse Ferrell posted a summation of Derecho articles on The WeatherMatrix blog

Chuck Prevatte sent an article from FoxBusiness channel on five graduate degrees that don't pay off.

Earth Science Picture of the Day comes through with another great cloud photo

Just as a bonus, I thought I'd throw in some pictures that a crewmate took from our ship while we were in the North Atlantic, somewhere in the GUIK gap, in the late summer, 1979 (maybe 1980)

If you read this, let me know that you saw the ship pictures.

Thanks for listening, Skydaver out!
