A very beautiful sunset at Valletta ironically due to the eventual approach of a thunderstorm that occurred later in the night. The setting sun shining on the cloud bases of stratocumulus opacus, the cloud species that normally give strong evidence of incoming bad weather, made the sky look as if on fire. This sunset (of course due to cloud formations) was produced due to the weakening centre of a mid-latitude cyclone approaching the Maltese Islands as evidenced by both the visible satellite image and the surface pressure chart on the third and fourth thumbnails respectively. The first thumbnail is a photo taken at the same time of the sunset photo but from a different angle confirming the clouds as being stratocumulus opacus. The corresponding weather sounding show an unstable airmass along with convection that were fuel for the overnight thunderstorm.
