Thanks so much for including this photo in your "best of" monthly blog. These iridescent clouds were magnificent, and the longest lasting I've ever seen. The clouds were featured on the network news that night and seen by many in person as well as on the news. The day was warm, reaching 103.6F with no rain.

About GaryVA


My interest in weather really spun up during my career in wildland fire management in Southern California, as weather has a tremendous affect on wildfire starts and behavior. This is an, ahem, older photo of me in those days. I'm now living in central Texas, and weather is a very serious hobby of mine. My weather web site, providing current, historical, and forecast weather conditions for Central Texas is Round Rock Weather. var sc_project=2591691; var sc_invisible=0; var sc_partition=25; var sc_security="b5a0cb54";
