Red Skies In Morning

"Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning”"
Red sky at night, sailors delight.
When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow.

Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning.
A red sunrise reflects the dust particles of a system that has just passed from the west. This indicates that a storm system may be moving to the east. If the morning sky is a deep fiery red, it means a high water content in the atmosphere. So, rain is on its way.  
Just a little did you know? Here in Eastern Wyoming we have frequent red skies in morning in the fall but not as much any other time of the year. Montana may be the Big Sky country but Wyoming is no slacker especially since most of the state is wide open plains. You can see for miles around and that means a big, beautiful sky.
