The Different Types of Clouds By: Alyssa Crowl
Stratocumulus Clouds: Weather associated is mostly fair weather but can sometimes cause rain or drizzle. These are stable clouds. Altitude is usually around 2,400m (6,500 ft)
Like cumulus clouds however they are more lumped together and much larger. They are large, dark, rounded masses with weak convective currents
Noctilucent Clouds: The weather associated with these clouds is linked to climate change and they are indicators of atmospheric processes. Stable clouds. Altitude is 76,000-85,000m (250,000-280,000 ft)
These are the highest clouds in the atmosphere. They can only be seen in deep twilight and they are made of small ice crystals. They are featureless bands that are often colorless or pale blue.
