Today has been very hot and then, this evening, heavy rain has swept in. Driving back from a rehearsal tonight, I spotted an interesting phenomenon with what appeared to be steam drifting up from the road surface. It was getting on for 10pm and almost completely dark so not a case of the ground being baking hot but probably something to do with temperature differentials.
A bit of searching round the web shows that it is nothing too unique but I don’t remember observing it before. I suppose it is very rare that I am out driving with headlights when a rainstorm follows a hot day; probably quite natural but it felt like driving through a movie.
