35C here... tad warmer than the 32C forecast, but it's actually semi-pleasant.

Not too much to get excited about at all on the satellite picture, especially not for SA. The forecast for the next few days is equally as bland until Thursday when the temp jumps several notches to a rather hot day and then continuing on for a few more at this stage. For us, at least, it could stay rather dry into February. The we'll see what happens, though Feb is statistically dry here with only 2 out of the last 9 years getting more than 10mm for the whole month.

I do apologize for the very poor quality of the photos. My camera is on it's last few photos (to my horror. The prospect of several months without a camera is terrifying), but I saw something quite odd this evening. The sun had set, and it had become quite dark when at 9:15pm the sky towards the west started to glow red again. The glow grew brighter for about 50 seconds, then grew darker again, and was gone after about a couple of mins. The two photos where taken at 9:17 and 9:20. I wonder if it had to do with some very distant reflection off of the ocean, on to something, then onto the clouds I was looking at. It was just so odd to see this happen after the light had already completely faded.

Chris my take for what its worth.
Watch some sunsets and they die normally. The colour fades and the sky darkens then the colour shoots back for a very short period, usually from a cloud hole just below the horizon in just the right spot to catch the highlights of high cloud above that is still just seeing the sun as on its horizon. Sorta like watching a mountain catch the last sun rays while you in the valley are in shade.
I guess what you saw is just the same thing, but occurring in the sky almost over your horizon.
I spose you could say you saw someone else's sunset a long way west, a sunset that did just what I described above.
Rather poor wording, hope it makes sense???

Re sunsets and sunrises,
I quote Tornadosky from an ancient thread

http://forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=57737&

"For many years I have wondered why some sunsets are spectacular and some sunsets are dull and colourless even though the clouds seemed to be quite similar. Was it simply some subtle difference in the clouds that I didnt notice that determined whether it was a colourful or dull sunset? And then I had an idea, doubtless well known to some but I would be interested to hear whether you think I am right or not.

For a typical colourful sunset to occur, the rays of the sun (below the western horizon to us observers) must illuminate the bases of clouds in our western sky. The rays must be coming from a level lower in the atmosphere than the bases of the clouds. Because sunlight travels in straight lines and the Earth is curved, this sunlight that strikes the bases of the clouds must enter the atmosphere a long way to our west (well below our horizon), pass through the lower layers of the atmosphere below the ten thousand metre level and then strikes the bases of clouds (typically cirrus and middle level clouds) in our western sky. But suppose when it is travelling through the lower layers of the atmosphere below our western horizon it encounters clouds and is blocked. In these circumstance it cant shine on the bases of the clouds above our western horizon so we dont see a pretty sunset.

Hence some sunsets (and sunrises too) are colourless even though suitable clouds are present to create a colourful sunset in our western sky, because the sunlight is being intercepted by clouds well below our western horizon hundreds of kilometres away."

What a genius that man is smile

Thanks Tim and Unstable. The "principals" behind sun refraction/distortion and sunset colors do make sense, it was just odd to see it still applied that late. There was still color, not just faint twilight, 50 mins after sunset and 20 mins after last light (something I'd expect to see as you move closer to the poles, and the sun disappears behind the horizon much slower and at a shallower angle in summer). I wonder if that means that there was an exceptionally bright/colorful sunset beyond the western horizon. It was towards the southwest so maybe Azza experienced an unusually bright one?

it was quite red/purple last evening and this time of year we can see the sun set over the water about 80 Meters away (thanks to the neighbor at the back (due west) who cut down a few branches) its all a matter of where the gaps in the clouds are to let the light through and obviously the sun has to be beyond the horizon to shine upwards, although sometimes about an hour or 2 before a sunset if its clear to the west but cloudy overhead the suns rays are reflected by the ocean and back up to the base of the clouds giving the bases a silvery appearance, its interesting though how long the light can be reflected continuously around the curvature of the Earth on the underside of the clouds, the longer the distance the deeper reds/purples imo

this shot is of a sunrise quite sometime BEFORE the sun actually made an appearance as the light that was underneath the cloud was on its second or third 'rebound' the original Raws for this shot were very dark

Yeah I have to agree with Tim, clouds on the western horizon were probably illuminated by the sunset (and the satellite picture of 9pm seems to support this) and we could see it from here. I would like to think though that that beautiful shade of pink was not as nice there as it was here smile

Thanks Azza, that's pretty much the sort of circumstances I imagined too. I've drawn up a diagram that sort of explains the concept with grossly over emphasized curvature.

Told you teck,, I scared it away,,, smile
Aparently just down the road Smithfield had just over 5 mm today, surprised the hell out of me seeing as it's within walking distance from me. Didn't even register hear (sorry about the earlier spelling mistake thunda smile ) although the gutters did run a little with the 2 quick showers we had.

So wish me luck with my job interview tommorow, it's my first job interview in 20 years. Will i be nervous? Hell yeah! Will i get the job? that remains to be seen. WIll the clouds thicken and drop buckets of rain and soak me to the core? Well thats a possibility. For those that are interested, the jobs for a position in making rain water tanks :0 you could say thats related to a weather job smile

Great pics guys,, especially AZTECH,,, great colours assuming there real and what actually occured smile

Might want to change your signature too, WC... it's that "hear, here" thing again. grin

Not surprised by some of the falls yesterday. On our trip to the big smoke there were pleanty of rainshafts to be seen, with heavy falls imbedded in them. This is more like my kinda weather, especially up here. Nice to be able to open the house nice and wide to some cool fresh air.

WC? helen, not you too, lol.
it's ok WG, typos are one thing everyones subject to,
and deliberate contortion like gunna and enuff ect.
are not a prob for me, it took me a fair while to
decide that your use of hear wasn't a deliberate way
you were writing but an innocent mistake through not
knowing, also for your own benefit when someone who
doesn't know you any better reads what you write it
will prevent them from thinking you are not as smart
as you actually are.
anyweigh enuff of dis, r is gunna leeve it at dat.

cheers

OnT:- had a couple of half decent showers early yesterday
morning that registered 5/8s of bugger all, and plenty of
wind for the rest of the day.

Talk about average weather forecasted. No rain to fill a water tank even!! smile

At least it's not going to be hot. I need this weather to stay like this for a while to condition me into it, cause i'm used to air conditioned cool rooms. 40+ just may destroy my will to live in the shed i saw today smile
