Impressing Clouds, Baltic Sea, February 16th, 2014

Warnemünde at the Baltic Sea, which is situated close to Rostock, is a very popular beach for people from Berlin and Hamburg during summer. In Rostock there is a big harbor and ferries leave regularly for Denmark and Sweden.

On February 16 a strong wind blew from the South-West, even this was nothing compared to the devastating storms in the UK and Western Europe. However weather patterns seem also here a bit unusual: there was an impressing sky the whole day, but in the afternoon a real amazing shower could be seen from the shore. The shower didn’t reach Warnemünde where only a few drops of rain fell. A shower in February isn’t so unusual but this looked more like typical April weather. It was mostly cloudy all the day but light conditions changed every minute, which made this day very interesting for every photographer.

Even there was some winter in the East of Germany this year the ice on the lakes melted very quickly and throughout February it was much too warm for the season. Furthermore their was nether a winter with lesser rain since 1996. The time-lapse video gives an idea about the dimension of the impressing shower:
