Red sky take no warning

Here’s an oddity for you—a red sky (sailor take warning) in the morning with nary a forecast of poor weather nor a thing on the radar.  Is this the exception that proves the rule?  I can’t remember the last time a lovely red sky like the one this morning didn’t mean poor weather ahead.

Okay, so rain might be coming my way on Friday, but that’s too far ahead to count, I think.  And there could be rain on the radar about 110 miles south of me, but I don’t think that counts either.

Typically a red sky morning means rain within 24 hours and usually within 12 hours.  Today, this sky doesn’t seem to mean anything except that clouds at the horizon turned a lovely shade of red this morning at sunrise.
