Sunset Virga

Sunset Virga
Clouds dropping rain that isn't reaching the ground (very common in this part of the world). Carson Valley, Nevada, USA, looking south off US 50/Lincoln Highway. The skylined mountains are in California.

The clouds look great in the sunset light.
I 've seen clouds like that on the Altiplano but I didn't know what they were called. I seems they only form in very arid areas.

Thanks! The lower atmospheric layers have to have a low enough relative humidity so that the rain can evaporate completely, so the phenomenon is most common in deserts. The weather forecasts around here mention it all the time!

Thanks, George! Virga is very common in deserts--I'm sure it's common in your Outback!
