From The Weather Center: El Nino limits what could have been an active tropical season this year. Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues for central Mississippi; the displacement of the mid-latitude westerlies are so far south which are causing very cool temperatures this far south which is helping aid severe weather.
WeatherBrains 101: This episode of 101 continues a short series on things that the Doppler weather radar network can see that are not precipitation. This week we take a look at smoke plumes on radar.
TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of August 13th.
