First up, the web comic xkcd (which is not always safe for work) has a feature called "what if". This week, the author wrote "what if all of the rain from a storm fell as a single drop." I think you'll like it.
John Morales sent out a tweet with a link to the Capital Weather Gang, with a guest op-ed article on the NWS
My third pick came from Michael W. Moss, @mossgrowth on Twitter, with a link to his Google Hangout interview with Jacob Wycoff from Weatherbug about their products: youtu.be/MkXPu2fIAJA
Fourth, I have a rerun, with a pitch for CoCoRaHS. Last week's rain in the US Atlantic states was a pretty interesting event. I only had .2 ", while the airport in my town, 5 miles east, had 1.4". More CoCoRaHS coverage will help refine the data to show that kind of localized difference.
My final pick for this week is from Brad Panovich with a graphic showing a neat pattern of record high and low temperatures for the week of Sept. 17
Thanks for listening,
My Pick for JB
With the GOES-13 satellite problems this week, the NOAA Satellite Services Division is a good resource for weather satellite details. In the time since I created this edition for WeatherBrains, GOES-13 has been fixed and is back online.
