What's Your Forecast? Just Ask the Nearest Cloud: Nimbostratus Clouds: Rain, Rain Go Away!

Snowing NIMBOSTRATUS (LOW) Photo taken by Lin Chambers at NASA Langley on February 27, 2002 during a late-season snow. Note the extremely uniform and featureless nimbostratus cloud which is dropping snow on the ground. Nimbostratus clouds are very difficult to photograph, because they are very uniform and offer little contrast. Generally nimbostratus clouds form rain, but snow is somewhat more photogenic.

Cumulonimbus Incus With its characteristic flat, anvil shaped top this cloud can easily form into supercells and generate severe weather patterns such as tornadoes.

Cirrus Cloud this afternoon. Rain in forecast so hope to see some Nimbostratus clouds soon.

Cloud-Cumulonimbus clouds, with their characteristic anvil shape, can also produce precipitation, but it's usually more intense and short-lived than that produced by nimbostratus clouds.
