Powerful "Overshooting Cloud Tops" In Cyclone Felleng Seen By NASA
2013-01-30 09:51:12

NASA NASA satellite imagery revealed that Cyclone Felleng is packing some powerful thunderstorms with overshooting cloud tops. An overshooting (cloud) top is a dome-like protrusion that shoots out of the top of the anvil of a thunderstorm and into the stratosphere. It takes a lot of energy and uplift in a storm to create an overshooting top, because usually vertical cloud growth stops at the tropopause and clouds spread horizontally, forming an "anvil" shape on top of the thunderstorms....

Undulatus Asperatus Clouds Seek Official Status
2012-09-20 19:06:49

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new variety of cloud is attempting to be officially added to the classification system after first being discovered in 1951. Meteorologists and "cloudspotters" are looking to formally add undulatus asperatus clouds, or "agitated waves," to the official list of cloud species. The clouds look like a fluffy blanket that cover part or all of the sky. The United Nations' World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva has the...

The above map looks at what is known as ceilings. The definition of ceilings is the first broken or overcast layer of cloud cover in the atmosphere. For it to be considered a ceiling the clouds need to cover more than half of the sky. If we look at the red circled area we see the numbers of 1 and 2. This tells us that there is a ceiling at 1,000-2,000ft which are in the level of low clouds such as cumulus or stratus. The second is the black circle found in the Dakota’s. Here we are...

Cumulus-nimbus Clouds
2014-01-11 00:00:00

The image above shows a Cumulus-nimbus cloud that has an anvil top to it. The reason that can be identified is that the cirrus is in place above the center of the storm. The image below does not have an anvil top yet. The anvil top forms on CB clouds after they reach the height in the atmosphere where they begin to feel the upper level winds becoming too strong for them to continue development vertically. The storm on the right has not felt the upper level winds yet, that is why it lacks the...

Cumulus Clouds (Low Cloud)

If you look in the photo above you can see the line of Cumulus clouds that appear in the background. These clouds were created by daytime heating and also an unstable atmosphere. The moisture for these clouds was rising from the Pacific Ocean. The darker cloud is the stronger of the cumulus clouds meaning that the majority of the moisture is being absorbed by that cloud. The clouds around this one are also starting to get more moisture from the ocean to build. Above the cumulus clouds you...

Cumulus Clouds And Their Development
2012-07-16 11:04:21

Cumulus clouds are white in appearance and are formed when warm moist air near the earth’s surface is forced aloft by day time heating. Cumulus clouds are usually associated with nice weather, however if they continue to grow and get more moisture and instability with them they can turn into Towering Cumulus and CB clouds which would change the weather to increase the chance of seeing thunderstorms. Cumulus clouds are typically associated with being found ahead of the cold front and also...

Cirrocumulus clouds are high-altitude clouds that mainly occur between 16,000 and 40,000 feet. Like most cumulus clouds, these clouds indicate a vertical and upward transference of atmospheric conditions. Unlike other cirrus clouds, cirrocumulus composition includes super-cooled liquid water droplets. Ice crystals are also present, and usually, the ice crystals cause the droplets in the cloud to freeze rapidly, transforming the cirrocumulus into cirrostratus. This process can also produce ice...
