    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: Last week we answered a question about some non-precipitation spikes on radar that have to do with sunrise and sunset. So we’re going to follow up with several episodes of 101 on some items that weather radar sees but that are not precipitation echoes. This week we’re talking crop circles – well actually bird roosts.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the events of – yesterday – at a NASCAR event. Lightning took its toll with one death and nine injuries.
