Sky Watch Friday #5

Sometimes large Indian Ocean storms move in onto the coast of Western Australia.

The high precursor clouds can fill the sky for twenty four hours before the wind rises and the active part of the storm strikes with its lightning and rain.

Last Friday was just such a day. Through the day the cloud increased, the air became still and the sky slowly disappeared.

By late afternoon the river was reflecting the sky in quiet repose.

On Saturday the heavens unleashed their fury.
