Rainbow in afternoon, then wind


A beautiful rainbow filled the afternoon sky over Vineyard Sound Thursday.

After a day of drizzle, rain and mostly cloudy skies, the rainbow appeared around 4 pm.

The weekend will be different. The National Weather Service has issued a gale warning from 7 pm Thursday until 4 pm Friday, and again from 1 pm Saturday until 5 pm Sunday. A gale warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots, according to the warning.

Seas of 6 to 9 feet are also possible. The warning area includes Vineyard Sound, which could impact ferry trips. Check steamshipauthority.com for updates.
