That hurricane is now hitting Ireland. It's technically a tropical storm now but still really nasty. Where I am (western side of England) the wind is now picking up, it's strangely warm, and the sky is a disturbing pinkish-brown colour.
the sky is a distinctly yellow/orange colour (apparently due to dust from the Sahara blown up from the south by Ophelia).
I believe this is the effect of the wildfires in Portugal and Northern Spain. Please check BeNeLux, north Germany, parts of Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Baltic states under thick smoke from fires in north Spain and Portugal today It is unfortunately pretty common here to see this sort of skies.we had a weird sky during the afternoon with a huge orange /red sun
That's even making the news over here. I am kinda glad it wasnt that bad when I was over there. Stay safe, you guys.Getting our share of the Arctic Blast that's swept most of the Northern CONUS. 15F Ambient but with the windchill it's closer to zero. It Is Deadly Out There. I stepped out for a minute not wearing socks with my shoes just to collect the rubbish bins last night and my toes immediately started to numb out. We've got another seven days of this craziness, and it's not even February which is the traditionally bad month for Winter Weather.
