The Clearing Line
One of my favorite non-storm related meteorological phenomena is when a sharp boundary exists between a large stratus deck and clear skies - I call it a 'clearing line'. (If I had gone to school for a four-year met degree I'd probably know if there was a proper term for this.) In my opinion, clearing lines are best when they move in right before sunset, giving an unexpectedly nice end to a dreary overcast day.
Looking at the visible satellite image, I see there is one right now in eastern Kentucky, slowly inching this way. I have been known to get in the car and drive west for no reason other than to watch the evening sky go from gray and gloomy to clear-sky sunset. If I can get these last few projects done this afternoon, I might just do that again.
