Video: See a Full Day of El Cerrito's Scurrying Cloudscape in Just 37 Seconds

This time-lapse video of a day in the sky of El Cerrito by Ian Billings proves that Bob Dylan was right when he sang, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

From sunup to sundown Friday, the camera of El Cerrito High School senior Ian Billings captured the scudding clouds and shifting colors of the El Cerrito sky. This time-lapse video is made from one photo taken each minute from 6:20 a.m. to 9:12 p.m.

Very cool video! Which direction WERE those clouds heading, out of curiosity?

Very cool video! I love how the upper layer of clouds is moving left in the video, and the lower layer moving toward us.

I like that part too. I don't think I've seen such a dramatic recording of how two layers of air masses over our heads can move so independently of each other.

The camera was pointed toward the Golden Gate, so in the morning, it appeared to me that the clouds were heading east and then shifted slightly toward the the northeast as the day wore on. In the afternoon, a separate upper layer appeared that seemed bent on reaching Modesto.
