Dear WeatherCat shutterbugs,

Alas, the sun is "waking up" before I do so the best photo opportunities will have to wait for another year.  Still the sky this morning was interesting enough to grab a photo:



It is another mood of the sky worth capturing!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Edouard, another excellent morning photo, I really like how the sky looks with the sun shining through the clouds.

Here is one I took a few minutes ago, it is very cloudy and 41F, forecasted low for overnight is 33F.



This April has been the coldest in the 11 year history of ParsonsWeather.com with 2 new April records:
The coldest day in April, 4/8/18 with 28.0F.
2 days in April, 4/7/18 and 4/8/18, with temperatures below freezing.

History of days at or below 32.0F in April:

2018
4/7   30.0F
4/8   28.0F

2014
4/16   30.0F

2008
4/15   29.5F

You are welcome!  Glad you enjoyed it!  :)

Thanks for sharing that photo!  :)  Yes, weather extremes seem to be becoming more "normal."  Unfortunately, for all the talk about weather and climate, understanding the atmosphere is among the hardest problems in science.  Expecting a massive amount of gas to behave predictably given all the forces upon it and all the potential freedom of movement - it is a physicist's nightmare.  For all the progress in theory and advances in computing technology - we still have a long way to go.

Cheers, Edouard
