Altocumulus

For those who were awake to see it, Lyon woke up this morning to an impressive cloud display in the sky.

I'm not an expert, but I believe this to be an altocumulus formation, a precursor to thunderstorms later in the day if seen on a warm and humid summer morning, our exact current conditions.

If it proves true and the sky turns dramatic this afternoon, I'll try to post more images.






Close-up of altocumulus. The black points in some of the clouds
are swifts, darting about the sky on their early morning food run.
