Stunning sunrise over Sussex marks calm before the storm

The Argus: Stunning sunrise over Sussex marks calm before the storm Stunning sunrise over Sussex marks calm before the storm

Sussex woke to a stunning sunrise this morning as pink altocumulus clouds drifted across the sky.

Early risers from Seaford, Shoreham, Lewes and Brighton and Hove all took to social media to add their sunrise snaps.

Our own photographer Simon Dack also managed to capture the pink hues on display.

But the beautiful scene marked the calm before the storm with more rain and wind forecast for today.

The Met Office said: "Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, will move northeast across the UK on Sunday accompanied by strong winds. Quite widespread accumulations of 10-15 mm are likely across southern areas with locally in excess of 30 mm possible over some higher ground.

"This additional rainfall, following the recent very wet weather, means that the public should be aware of an increased risk of both surface water and river flooding as well as disruption to transport."

It was a truly stunning spectacle. It was an absolute pleasure to view when taking the dog for his walk. It went from salmon pink, to dark pink and finished off with burnished gold. Beautiful

As my Grandfather used to say....

Red sky at night - shepherds delight

Red sky at morning - shepherds warning

Meat and mash in the sky - shepherds pie

It was funny when I was 7 !
