Hello, WeatherBrains fans, this is the Sandy edition of the Fog Bank. You can send me your choices for the Fog Bank picks here or on Twitter @skydaver.
First, a couple of links unrelated to the hurricane.
@localyokelwx posted a satellite picture showing fog in the valleys of western NC on Oct. 5
Mike Moss posted an interview that he did with Scott Thoma, author of "Out of the Blue", about the Tracy, Minnesota F5 tornado in 1968
Earth Observatory and NASA Visualizations had rapid scan images of Sandy, from GOES-14. What I find interesting about these videos is that the clouds seem to be streaming opposite the rotation at the far western side of the images.
Also from Mike Moss, Some footage from Derek Sibley of Sandy: youtu.be/7UC6F9xm8nw
There are several stories about fake pictures from Sandy, this one is from Mashable
Thanks for listening, Skydaver out.
