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.

Captivating Clouds (2): Nimbostratus Cloud (rain-layered):The Nimbostratus clouds are almost always an indication of rain.They're grey and foggy-like withoutanydistinct shape or form. They also can be seen hanging very low to the ground and covering most of the sky. If you catch yourself under a blanket of this type of cloud, be sure to have an umbrella athand.

Fractus clouds (scuds): small, ragged cloud fragments usually found under an ambient nimbostratus cloud base; drift rapidly with the wind; rain evaporates and mixes with the air, which becomes saturated and a lower layer of clouds or fog may form beneath the original clouds base (scud)

Nimbostratus is a subtly textured raglan pullover knit in the round. Worn with positive ease and lots of squishy stretch, this is a go-to sweater for midnight walks, cloud observing, rainy day tea rituals, and secret club meetings.

Nimbostratus clouds form a dark gray, "wet" looking cloudy layer associated with continuously falling rain or snow. They often produce precipitation that is usually light to moderate.
