S'COOL: Altocumulus Clouds
Photo by Jon Doughty, June 2007. Another nice example of summertime altocumulus in Virginia, again taken as the weather was changing in advance of a front. Note the thicker portion of the cloud at upper left. This cloud field was somewhat complex and challenging to identify. Determination of altocumulus was confirmed by looking at the cloud altitude and ceiling information on the Weather Underground website.
