are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.

weatherman

The weatherman on your local station is kind of self-important and likes to explain things in ways that don't make a lot of sense to the layperson. He's always describing things in a very roundabout way, and half the time you end up tuning out before he goes on to say what it actually is. What weather phenomenon is he describing here?

An extended period when a region notes a deficiency in its water supply

last round's answer

An optical phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky.
