Red Sky at Night

The orange sky that appeared at sunset last night, July 16, 2010, in Strafford County, NH.

“Red sky at night,
sailor’s delight.
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.
