Weekend time lapses: Let's go surfing now

It's been another good week of time lapse video, perhaps highlighted by the fantastic one on March 15th that showed heavy snow in the morning, then strong wind in the afternoon.

Here it is again from Dr. Dale Ireland's camera in Silverdale, in case you missed the original blog entry:

 

Aside from the 15th, the 18th had some really unusual clouds as well. Toward the afternoon, they appeared to be flowing in place, as if they were surfing on the wind.

Here it is from Silverdale:

St. Patrick's Day also had some "Surfing clouds" as seen from the UW, camera, plus watch for the brilliant rainbow halo around the sun as it makes its way to the horizon in the afternoon:

The rest of the week was pretty run of the mill, but here they are in case you're interested:
