Blue sunset

Cool sunset, no reds and yellows.

Looking west

Late in the day, looking west, the sky was a jumble of cumuli, moving fast, while in the east the sky was mostly clear.

Fair weather clouds

A fine day, the sky full of cumulus mediocris, otherwise known as "Simpsons' clouds", like the ones featured the cartoon's opening sequence.

Streaks

As the sun set, some stratocumulus undulatus was tinted peachy pink.

Today's forecast: heavy rain

But there was sun between the showers...






















Taken from my office window, about 15 minutes apart.

Looks warmer than it is


















Today's weather forecast said "sunny intervals". This was one of them, at tea-time. There was ice on the roads this morning, and sleet for a while. Soon after I took this, it went dull and dark again.

Storms? What storms?

We've had strong winds and rain and the news is full of floods and power cuts, yet no one's mentioned climate change. Saw a link to a BBC news report on Twitter, where some woman was complaining to the Prime Minister that "not enough has been done...". Doubt it's occurred to her that it'll be a losing battle to stop the flooding, long-term, if nothing is done about global warming. How much energy is she using, without consideration?

Anyhow, this was the view from my window this afternoon, just before a sheet of stratocumulus hid the blue sky. Deceptively calm and peaceful. It won't last.

PS: Forgot my camera the other day. Being driven through the next village, soon after a hail shower, saw storm clouds in the south, with torrential sheets of rain. To the west, clear blue sky. It all changes so quickly.
