Meanwhile, many expressed relief that Florida was spared major damage from the powerful storm that was originally forecast to make landfall in the state. 

Meteorologist Jayme King told Fox 35 how the phenomenon occurs.

‘So the purple looking sky is due to ‘refraction’ or sunlight rays bouncing off of the clouds in the picture. Depending on how the light is refracted and the position of the sun will dictate the part of the color spectrum represented.’
