Friday 17 April 2020 – Altocumulus

IMG_9403About 0900 at Reculver, Kent.  Very nearly clear skies, quite sunny but fairly breezy.

The sky is not entirely clear.  The are some fairly high clouds.  They are not cirrus, because they have a bubbly shape to them – so, alto-cumulus.

Alto-cumulus can indicate a different and unstable airmass spreading into the area of observation in the upper levels.  Today there is a front to the south that is moving North and is forecast to spread rain across the area this evening.
