Saw for the first time ever a moonbow last evening. Moon had just risen and a shower was coming in from the west. Looked up on Wikipedia and found conitions were perfect to have one. Even though they reckon best with full moon there was enough from what we had last night.
Weather this morning is cold showers from the west with the temperature at 11c at 8.45 am. Feels like winter in the north is finally catching up with us. Total rainfall since Tuesday to date is 27 mils here in Wellsford, Lower Northland.
