Cs fibratus

Formation of wispy cirrostratus clouds due to relatively strong jet stream wind (3rd thumbnail). This wind had created the fibratus effects on the ice cystals making up the cloud. This is different from cirrus fibratus because the halo around the sun could be clearly seen in this photo and the 1st thumbnail which is the photo of the sun`s halo taken from a statue to block the sun confirms this. Humidity of the jet stream level was 100% – moisture is a very important ingredient for such cloud to develop. This cloud was seen after the previous night`s small low pressure system passed over the Islands and hence in this instance, it indicated improved weather conditions.
