Arctic blast brings sun dogs

Montgomery awoke on Thursday, Dec. 5 to frigid temperatures and the appearance of sun dogs. Sun dogs are a weather phenomena that appears on the horizon on frigid winter mornings when the sun is low. Sun dogs are also known as mock suns, because they are brightly colored spots that show up on either side of the sun. These come out when the sunlight passes through ice crystals. The best time to see them is sunrise or sunset. If you missed it this morning, you’re not out of luck. The temperatures are forecasted to remain in the single digits, allowing for more sun dogs on Friday and Saturday. (Wade Young Photo)
