Fog Bank, July 22, 2013

Hello Weatherbrains listeners, this is Dave Phillips. Please follow me on Twitter, @skydaver.  I follow back, but I'm stuck near the 2000 following mark.

First up, Astronomy Picture of the Day,  with a waterspout photo

My second pick is a blogpost by Brad Panovich about western NC rainfall totals .. almost 30" above average, lacking about 1/2 inch to reach average annual total.

Third is a book recommendation - I was out on the golf course in some gusty winds, which reminded me of "Defining the Wind: The Beaufort Scale, and How a 19th-Century Admiral Turned Science into Poetry"
by Scott Huler
available at book sellers everywhere

NOAA Weather Partners with a new video on Phased Array radars & PARISE, Phased Array Radar Innovative Sensing Experiment

My last pick is Ginger Zee's heatwave story.  I couldn't find that on the WeatherBrains page, so I've got it for you in the Fog Bank.
HT to Kevin Morris, who posted it to Google+

Bonus pick
ESPOD July 18 had Undulatus Asperatus Clouds

Thanks for listening, Skydaver out.
