The orange sky that appeared at sunset last night, July 16, 2010, in Strafford County, NH.
“Red sky at night,
Red sky in morning,
sailor take warning.”
It was just a plain, hot, overcast day yesterday, and the same for today. Not much reason I can fathom for the sudden orange hue and biscuity clouds. If anyone sees a sailor, please inquire if he or she had a delightful Friday evening. OK? OK!
EDIT: My Dad reckons that the clouds are cumulonimbus mammatus.
