While the first four days of 2021 haven’t been a spectacle, the fifth day brought a sight to sore eyes.
Rather than the usual gloom that hits Seattle skies, residents woke up to a fantastic sunrise, blanketing our beautiful city in a veil of pink, orange, and purple.
Not a bad way to start off the year.

For those of you who were not awake earlier we give you the 1st colorful sunrise of 2021. Hello Mount Rainier! A real smorgasbord of atmospheric features, lenticular clouds, sun pillar and crepuscular rays. Reality check…rain returns later today. #wawx #sunrise #seattle pic.twitter.com/CUOeyv8LSm

Caught a glimpse of the sunrise this morning.
Now that winter has arrived in Seattle, seeing the sun even for a brief moment is noteworthy before the grey comes back. pic.twitter.com/4zNUcp3bRh
