    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: Weather observations are taken by machine, but that can be a good thing. This episode of 101 takes a look at some of the items the ASOS weather observing equipment can “see” along with some of the limitations that go with automated equipment.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of January 10th. Some of the big events included cold, high wind, and lake effect snows to name just a few.
