I don't know enough about cloud formations to know whether the cold is approaching, but this photo definitely conveys to me that the cold is already there. I realize there are degrees of cold but this image definitely gives me the feeling of brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Nearly clear sky and new fallen snow imply excellent radiational cooling conditions overnight. So yes, this picture does convey COLD.
Thanks. After a day of warmth we re going back to the cold. How long till spring?I agree with the others. Very nice image.
