High clouds: Cirrocumulus
Illustration of a cirrocumulus cloud, a large, white patch or tuft without a gray shadow. Composed of supercooled liquid droplets (if they freeze, becomes cirrostratus - cirrocumuli are short lived) Each cloudlet appears no larger than a finger held at arms length. It occurs in patches or sheets, organized in rows like other cumulus, but since they are so small, cirrocumulus patches take on a finer appearance, sometimes referred to colloquially as "herringbone" or "mackerel".

Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane, typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. Has counterclockwise rotation in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise rotation in the Southern Hemisphere due to the Coriolis Effect. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,hurricane,typhoon,tropical,storm,cyclonic,storm,tropical,depression,cyclone Weather; hurricane (N Hemisphere) Illustration of a hurricane, or tropical cyclone: a storm system characterized by a low pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and flooding rain.

When thick enough to be seen, they are whitish, usually with no distinguishing features. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,ice,moisture High clouds: Cirrus Illustration of cirrus clouds, which are characterized by thin, wisplike strands, often accompanied by tufts, leading to their common (non-standard) name of mare's tail. Cirrus clouds are formed when water vapor freezes into ice crystals at altitudes above 8000 meters (26,000 ft). Due to the sparse moisture at a high altitude, they tend to be very thin. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,ice
