Red dawn

Posted by Greg Haley on November 27, 2005

Origin or meaning of the phrase "red dawn"? In atlanta GA, at about 2:30 am the wind increased, and the by seemed as if dawn was arriving, yet quite clearly red, reflected beneath what seemed to be low lying clouds or smoke. Any folkloric or weather-wisdom relation to this phrase?
