Today’s Weather And Current Fire Conditions For Wednesday June 13th, 2018

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.

Red Cloudbow over Delaware

Explanation: 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 BeachDelawareUSA. 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.
