Inversion

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A temperature inversion this morning, cold air (-26F -32C) on the surface is trapped by a warmer layer aloft... Colder air bending the light makes it look like there is a steep rise in the road, where none exists.

Not a very good picture, bouncing down the highway.

The long stretch of road adds depth to your gorgeous photo. The colors are as crisp as the weather. Mother Nature did a beautiful job carving those mountains. Hard to take my eyes off this photo, but I want to look at your other photos, too.

Thank you kwoolkat, jsmiq, Shirley, mcleodglen and Mary. Kinda neat when this kind of mirage appears, helps to make the cold a little 'warmer.'

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
