Formation of a Cb incus cloud with a large anvil that is spread throughout. These clouds are typical over the Mediterranean during a high pressure above low pressure scenario (4th thumbnail) as cold air from continental Europe is poured towards the Central Mediterranean as per 3rd thumbnail. Since the air coming from Europe was not particularly cold, rain showers were far in between and again the weather sounding indicated that the air was only marginally unstable as sea temperatures in March are at their coolest. The first thumbnail is the remnants of cumulonimbus clouds while the second thumbnail show a visible satellite imagery of swirling clouds around the low pressure system which were similar to these photographed clouds.
