Tropical latitudes

We are currently veering south into Tropical latitudes (23 degrees N) where rain is common. At the equator, heat from the sun evaporates seawater creating warm moist air. This air rises and cools as it travels North and South towards temperate latitudes and condenses to form rain clouds. This morning you can see a rain squall in the distance, with a little bit of rainbow on the side.
