Houston-area residents woke up to a colorful view as severe thunderstorms began to roll in on February 20, 2017.
The sky lit up with vivid shades of pink and purple as the sun rose.
This monday morning was unlike anything residents had seen before.
It was already raining pretty hard, when the sun suddenly turned the sky in a strong magenta hue.
The purple glow lasted for about two hours.
The pink sky was reported as early as 5:30 a.m. and tarted fading away around 7:15 a.m.
I have seen red skies before but never purple. What about you?
The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a severe thunderstorm warning in several Texas counties (Fort Bend, Grimes, Harris, Montgomery, Walker and Waller) Monday morning until 6:30 a.m.
Will the purple sky return? It’s more than doubtful, but residents are hopeful.
What an absolutely gorgeous phenomenon!
Is ‘Purple Rain’ definitely stuck in your head now?
