dramatically hot


The weather in KL has been absolutely awful. It's either the haze which comes from the Sumateran forest fires or heavy storms, causing gridlock on the roads. However, for one week, Merdeka week which just passed, the weather was glorious. Clear skies and the sun pierced our skin. That's how clear and hot it was. I put it down to the Government's very competent witch-doctors, bomoh as we call them here in our neck of the woods. Nobody wanted a deary Independence weekend, did they?

It was in this week that I took this picture. The drama of the clouds never cease to amaze me. And here we have the Regent Hotel piercing them as if to puncture the clouds for rain to cool the heat.

Good morning Edwin from Finland, oh, sorry, you have already almost the evening!
Fine photo again!
And we have something identical in our weather - you have the Sumateraen haze and we have the Russian smoke.. from their forest fires.
Good weekend and nice weather!

Yesterday, the haze hit Singapore as well. We have been spared so far, but it blew over.

It was too hot to be comfortable yesterday, esp with haze. People get irritated.

Great angle. I have always liked these cirrocumulus clouds. They say they anticipate coming rains.
