HELPFUL TIP:

Don’t be afraid to pair weather conditions with your setting choice to contrast or reinforce a character’s emotions. Hopelessness might be mirrored in the relentless drizzle of rain and the resulting heavy drag of one’s clothes; alternatively, this feeling can stand out in stark contrast to sunlight dancing over fresh snow. Can weather also provide symbolism, thereby enriching the reader’s experience? Think about your goal for the scene and the mood you are trying to create, and then layer your description with meaningful choices.
SIGHTS:
A multi-colored arch—sometimes bright and clear, other times faint and fuzzy. Rainbows can vary in size, from single and double ones that cross the sky, to smaller ones near waterfalls or even beneath the spray of a sprinkler. Rainbows are most visible on the backdrop of passing storm clouds, when the colors appear more vivid.
