Cirrus floccus clouds at Valletta classified as such due to their resemblance of wool. In fact, floccus means a `tuft of wool` in Latin. On the right hand side of the photo some altocumulus clouds could also be observed. Such cloud seemed to have formed because the frindges (edge) of a frontal system had passed over the Islands. In this case, weather conditions had improved as the low pressure system moved eastwards and mainly effected Italy. The first thumbnail shows mid-level clouds on the very same day as a result of the low pressure nearby. The weather sounding showed lots of moisture between the altitudes of 6.5km and 10.5km favouring widespread formation of high clouds.
