May 16: Weather report

Driving early this morning on my way to lead a bird walk, I was listening closely to the weather report on public radio. Showers stopping on the coast, the weatherman said (and I paraphrase), with maybe even some brightening this afternoon. However, he went on, this was not necessarily a good thing, as that might produce atmospheric disturbances leading to thunderstorms.

The rain did stop, and at one point this afternoon, a patch of sky shone briefly. We were not disturbed by thunderstorms. However, as I drove home early this evening from a meeting, a tiny scattering of hailstones bounced around my car for a moment. And then they were gone.

After days of rain,
would a little sun really
cause a disturbance?
