Mainly sunny with a chance of a evening shower for today with moderate winds and a high of 22C. Currently we have clear sky’s, a temperature of 13C. our winds are from the WSW at 8 km/h and will increase to 15 km/h throughout the day.
We have no weather or marine wind warnings for our area at this time.
Our FIRE DANGER remains to be at LOW: Fire starts are unlikely. Weather and fuel conditions will lead to slow fire spread, low intensity and relatively easy control with light mop-up. Controlled burns can usually be executed with reasonable safety.
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!

Red Cloudbow over Delaware

What kind of rainbow is this? In this case, no rain was involved — what is pictured is actually a red cloudbow
. The unusual sky arc was spotted last month during sunset in Rehoboth Beach
. When the photographer realized that what he was seeing was extraordinary, he captured it with the only camera available — a cell phone. Clouds are made of
water droplets, and in a cloudbow a cloud-droplet group
reflects back light from the bright Sun (or Moon) on the opposite side of the sky. Similar phenomena include fogbows
and airplane glories
. Here, the red color
was caused by atmospheric air preferentially scattering away blue light — which simultaneously makes most of the sky appear blue
. A careful inspection reveals a supernumery bow
just inside the outermost arc, a bow caused by quantum diffraction
