|This is an unaltered/unenhanced image I captured early this evening at the intersection of Curbaril Avenue and El Camino Real in Atascadero, CA. It features a setting sun illuminating a buttermilk sky/mackerel sky as the next powerful El Niño enhanced storm approaches with a Pineapple Express component. The associated fetch of atmospheric moisture reaches out to the west beyond Hawaii and extends across the Pacific Ocean eastward through California and across North America into the Great Lakes region. |
