Here in N. california it was cooler than previous weeks, but unusually humid.
In the morning there were bizarre almost smog like clouds.
Tonight was much more strange.
No stars can be seen, total cloud cover, but they are not typical cumulo nimbus clouds. I believe these are higher altitude and again almost resemble smog.
Also, there appear to be dark patches and much brighter reddish patches, almost as if illuminated, and i dont think its from light pollution, not the Sun, as it is 4:15am and the reddish clouds are to the west and north/south west.
What really got me was what appeared to be tiny white flashes spordically appearing throughout the reddish patches. I saw some faint dark streaking too.
Ball lightning perhaps?
It is also unusually warm for this time of the night.

I don't know what it is about elderly folks that makes them so uncannily accurate about predicting the weather, but our neighbor made the statement last week that it was going to get cold a whole lot earlier than usual this year, and he said it would happen in mid August. His nephew just laughed at him and rolled his eyes, but it looks like he was pretty spot on. However...he said it'll stay that way. I guess we'll get to see if he's right about that too.

Woah creation bro, you must live pretty close to me! I instantly knew what the thread was about reading the headline. Are you near Sonoma county? This weather sucks, I hate humidity!
