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

Weather: cyclone (S 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. 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: wind vector Illustration of a wind vector, the two- or three-dimensional vector describing the instantaneous wind magnitude and direction at a point (often using Cartesian coordinates; i.e. X and Y wind vectors). The term can also apply to the resultant wind vector which is sometimes drawn as an arrow with length proportional to wind speed. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,wind,speed,direction,arrow

Low clouds: Stratus 1 Illustration of stratus clouds, meaning layer or blanket in Latin. Characterized by horizontal layering with a uniform base. Flat, featureless clouds of low altitude varying in color from dark gray to nearly white obscuring the disk of the sun. Essentially above-ground fog formed either through the lifting of morning fog or when cold air moves at low altitudes over a region. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,fog
