Stormy light and swirling kites

Interesting sky and weather tonight!

Dark storm clouds moved in just before sunset, accompanied by strong, swirling breezes.  The White-tailed Kites that have been roosting nearby responded by arriving at the roost site earlier than usual, soaring much higher than usual, and flying in to the roost site very fast at a very steep angle.  

It looked like there were some rain showers up high:

And then some intriguing rainbows surrounded by a rosy blush appeared to the east:

Not too long after, the sun lit up the western clouds:

It's raining now.  Will there be thunder tonight?
