Anticrepuscular rays are often dimmer than their counterpart: crepuscular rays

The latter term comes from the Latin for "twilight". Crepuscular rays occur when sunlight streams through breaks in the clouds (some other objects can cause this, too)

The system is producing heavy rain but the question remains as to whether heavy rain stays out to sea or some of our neighborhoods get clipped with it

No flash flood watch as of this morning but that could change as invest #98L starts moving north
