PHOTOS: Double rainbow fills stormy skies from Tennessee to New Jersey

From Tennessee to New Jersey, strong storms brought a rare February sight this week.

Double rainbows were spotted across the eastern United States as a violent springlike storm system trekked into the region.

"A push of warm and moist air and strong energy moving through the upper levels of the atmosphere gave way to strong thunderstorms from the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast on Wednesday evening," AccuWeather Meteorologist Maggie Samuhel said.

"Usually moisture like that doesn't make it as far north this time of the year," she said.

In central Pennsylvania, a bright double rainbow hung in the sky for roughly 10 minutes, treating locals to an impressive sight.

"It had a longer life than a typical rainbow," Samuhel said.
