Cu radiatus

Cumuliform clouds that appear to converge in a parallel line. From my personal experience on cloud observation, it seems that such clouds are different from a roll cloud in the sense that the rising top part is clearly visible unlike that of roll clouds which are induced by a rotating airmass. This cloud seems to have developed from an elongated area of rising air. For details on the weather conditions see `Cs fibratus`.
