Here is the smoke forecast for today with little change over the area. #wawx

For those of you who were not awake earlier we give you the 1st colorful sunrise of 2021. Hello Mount Rainier! A real smorgasbord of atmospheric features, lenticular clouds, sun pillar and crepuscular rays. Reality check...rain returns later today. #wawx  #sunrise  #seattle 

With "The Dark Side of the Moon" mostly facing Earth tomorrow, it might be worth being "Comfortably Numb" in the chilly morning temperatures to see "The Great Gig in the Sky" before sunrise as Venus pairs with a crescent Moon and Mercury. You'll "Wish You Were Here". #wawx
