Pom-pom clouds

Altocumulus stratiformis, late morning. They didn't last long.

The end of a fine day

Fine day, mild temperature. Looks like an early spring again.

Cold afternoon

The end of a chilly day. It was sunny earlier but by 4-ish it struggled to shine through streaks of stratocumulus, with wisps of cumulus fractus in the foreground.

Cloudlets

Bobbles of stratocumulus, with streaks of stratocumulus in the distance, during a brief sunny spell.

Wet evening


So far, the New Year has been wet, frosty and foggy - though not all at once. This was the end of a wet afternoon, seen through my window.

Hiding the moon





















As it got dark, the moon shone brightly for a little while, with just a few wisps of cumulus fractus above. Within half an hour or so, a thin layer of stratocumulus covered the sky and partially obscured it for minutes at a time. It's not as cold as last night but the weather forecast is an 80% probability of freezing conditions tonight.

Late sunrise

I don't often see the sunrise these days but this was late, as it's almost the shortest day. It had been raining overnight, hence drops of water on the window. The stratocumulus was clearing as things warmed up.

The birds are depressed












Today's weather forecast was "The day will be dull and overcast across the region with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and with mist and patchy fog becoming extensive by evening. Maximum Temperature 10C." Can barely see across the field in front of the house. It's very quiet - no birds singing. A pigeon perched in a tree seemed to be waiting for something to happen. Nothing did.
