    A chinook, pronounced "sh[​IMG]-n[​IMG]k[​IMG]", came over yesturday, rising the temperature to a comfortable 16 degrees, much to the dismay of skiers and snowboarders, but I was happy enough. :D. I was luckily able to grab these shots right when I got home from the zoo, and finally got them edited. Thanks to everyone who helped me in that thread :thumbup:

    My apolgies for posting so many threads lately, after not using my camera for several weeks, any picture I feel like I need to share :er:
    Enjoy!

    So that kind of thick cloud cover is called a "Chinook"?
    Wow, in the light of the setting sun these clouds begin to look really oppressive, and nice in their orange tint, too. Wow.
    The 16 degrees you are mentioning, are they Celsius-degrees then?

    I believe it is called a Chinook arch, seeing as it does technically arch right over the mountains. In summary, it is a warm wind, but if you want, you can read more about it here: http://www.mountainnature.com/Climate/Chinook.htm . The average temperature at this time of the year is about 1 or 2 degrees celsius, but when the thermometer showed 16, it felt more like Spring :D

    Thanks

    Ah, so I would think that "Chinook" with you is "Fön" with the people who live on this side of the Alps, down south in Bavaria. They get this kind of weather sometimes, too, with very warm air coming over the mountains and really falling in on them ... gives many people headaches and circulation problems.
