Sky Watch Friday - Storm


Today's weather report for Vienna, Austria:
Stormy western winds with gusts of 80 to 120 km/hour
(50 to 75 miles/hour),
daytime temperatures of up to 14°C (57°F) .
Driving could be dangerous, trees, branches and roof tops might be tossed and tumbled by the storm.
I expected a breathtaking sky but is was unspectacular.

However, the storm will blow off the last leaves
and on the weekend we expect the first snow flakes!


Have a lovely weekend!

Check the sky all around the blue planet here!

That's some serious wind! Sorry it didn't at least produce a spectacualr sky! I'm having wind and cold today, too, and there are a few clouds coming in, so we can hope...

Hi Maria :)

Inspite of bad weather forecast,grey unappealing skies and probably a depressed mood you managed some very good photos.

In the second photo, there is a white speck in the dark sky. It is either a very brave man on a glider or a large bird which has lost its way,I guess.

Congratulations for making the best of worst conditions.

Have a good day :)

In this case I'm glad your drive was unspectacular. You don't deserve to be tossed about by a storm!

Brenda said...

Those winds will surely clear the air. Have a great weekend!

Bonjour Maria.
We're sisters of Sky today, no?
A lot of grey moody weather, but the temper still resists to melancholy.
Bon week-end, Maria.

Those are beautiful shots. I love the way the buildings looks as well as the sky. I woke up this morning to snow in NC, US where I live and it was pretty although already melting.

Maria it looks like winter is closing in on your beautiful city. Do you think she will sleep, or will there be balls and music and lovely food and lots of fun? And of course Maria wrapped up in a red beany and a red jacket! Camera in hand....Servus

Nasty windchill with those temperatures! However, the photos are attractive.
