ID for clouds, please...

Recommended Posts

Can you please help me with the IDs for the following?

  1. think the first one might be lenticularis.  Am I correct?  Any other names I can add?
  2. What are the 2nd and the 3rd one?

Thanks in advance.

Looks to me like cumulonimbus on top and altocumulus lenticularis in the bottom two.

1) Looks like Altocumulus lenticularis forming a "pile d'assiettes" (french for heap of dishes)

2 & 3) No idea

 

Cheers,

Merci, Phillippe.  Ablsolutely no idea (2&3) either...

Thank you, Ed.  Are 2&3 altocumulus lenticularis, too?

They all look like variants of lenticular clouds to me. But IANAM.

"The bottom two" means #2 and #3, no? It's hard to be positive about IDing clouds because they are always morphing from one type into another.

Hi Ed & Russell

 

I trawled through internet images today.  As Ed suggested earlier, the bottom two look like altocumulus lentilcularis.

 

Thanks

'IANAM'   - I am not a meteorologist?
