SkyWatch Friday (my fifth) -- The Blahs!

.
At first glance, this sky pic looks like a clear blue sky without a cloud in the sky!

Wrong! The sky is all one big cloud, not an opening in sight.

This is a common sight in the early mornings around Houston. It isn't smog, it is just a low layer of clouds that soon will be burned off by the sun's heating rays.

The NOAA weather map picture of cloud formtions below shows a very large cloud over our part of Texas, circled. The Jim Bunch's home is to the top right (northeast) part of that big cloud. You might want to make it large sized to see the map better.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right

I told you the sun was doing its work. We will wait a half hour or so and have another look.
.
Now only these clouds are to be seen. They are hovering over the Houston area to our south and may bring them a few showers. We will be low humidity and dry today [I'm writing this on Thursday, the 14th] with temperatures in the mid-nineties.

BTW, some mornings start out this way, with the sun shining and the sky not overcast at all.

WE have days like that here too, Jim. In fact it was that way here all morning and then it rained. I think it is back to being a series of smaller clouds now.

Nice photography.

A little bit of this a little bit of the other might be best - only sometimes it get to be too much of the other.

Today started overcast here as well, but it never did produce the promised rain. Luckily, I find all skies interesting and beautiful!

Interesting series. I'm glad you told us it isn't always this way. We really need to see the sun first thing in the morning at least sometimes.

I'm glad the sun came out for you and it didn't stay foggy all day. ;-)

Lovely photos even if the sky wasn't cooperating really well.

Thanks for coming by mine earlier today.

Hah ... that is such a good yarn to step us through your morning like that. I guess we have them here in Australia too - just not very often.

Thank you, Jim.

Hi, Jim. Good to hear from you! Our sky was cloudy this morning, for which I am thankful...as a rain storm had just moved through. We now have blue sky and puffy, while clouds, but more rain is expected and hoped for. We need it as there is a huge burn ban in effect up this way and the tanks are beginning to get low!

Interesting series of shots. We have such a huge mixture of clouds here. This morning the sky is perfectly clear, which is rare.

Sorry, I’m a little late because I was sailing this weekend.
So I stop by and say thank you for a nice SWF.
