SLIDESHOW: Monday morning rainbow

Posted: Updated:

Many NBC12 viewers woke up to see a big, beautiful rainbow spanning the horizon.  Meteorologist Andrew Freiden says we typically get rainbows in the afternoon as rain moves East while the sun sets.

This morning, it was the opposite.  Rain was approaching from the west as the sun was rising. 

Andrew says if you want to see a rainbow: "Put your back to the sun, and look at the rain."

Thanks for your pictures!  We've compiled many of them into this slideshow and will continue adding to it throughout the day.
