The atmospheric pressure has been a bit lower over the past two days, here in Austin. Cumulonimbus can grow and bring some rain. It’s so nice to see and hear rain falls, especially after more than a month without any.
The sky over Austin was lovely today, especially at the end of the afternoon. The clouds seemed to whisper “rain is on the way”. We’ll know in a couple of days…
Mount Saint-Helens’ summit spearing clouds.
Windy, rainy and chilly day with wonderful clouds.
Yesterday’s weather made for a wonderful “show” in the Sky. Today was no less impressive. From dawn to dusk, huge cumulonimbus brought rain and light hail. They were followed by sunny spells quickly swept away by other anvil-like clouds pouring more rain, appearing as celestial threads. Dusk was very colorful with all sorts of cold and warm hues. Simply wonderful!
People say “never cast a clout till May be out” as the weather in April can still rapidly change. As the year progresses towards Summer, temperatures can still drop as low as 0-5C/32-42F and heavy clouds can bring rain and at times, hail.
Yesterday was such day, cold wind, low temps and rain. What a sight! The sky was constantly changing from dark clouds to rainbows to large blue patches before more clouds rolled in.
How not to be grateful for these moments?
Day’s end changing light. Breezy wind growing gusty. Strings of clouds pulling loads of rain. Life continues.
