#RedSky: Five talking points

Monday’s mixed weather conditions are due in part to the threat of Hurricane Ophelia, but they have brought some delight in the marvel at the Red Sky pictured across the UK.

Here are the five most interesting things about the red sky:

1. And so the proverb has come to pass

 

2. The end is nigh?

 

3. Bringing the Sahara to Birmingham

 

4. Is there life on Mars?

 

5. It’s all a little peculiar

 

The Met Office told Birmingham Eastside:

“Part of the reason is the wind and rain, but that combined with the high temperatures yesterday has drawn up some Saharan sand into the atmosphere and created this ‘red sky’ effect.

“As far as weather law goes, ‘red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning is one of the more reliable ones!”
