Wikipedia logo This image was selected as picture of the day for July 30, 2004, and June 26, 2005.

This sky has "nice day" written all over it. The cumulus humilis indicates very little convection in the lower atmosphere, and the fact that it is well-formed indicates light winds at low levels. There is no cloud aloft, and thus no moisture or stable conditions or both. The cumulus congestus on the horizon suggests showers may be possible three or four hours from now, at the earliest, but chances are good it will remain a pleasant day through until the evening.

The azure blue is typical of Alberta's clear, dust/haze/ pollution-free skies.
