In addition to official classification and identification shown by @Gkikas-LGPZ, I use the way how clouds are named to identify them. But being named by Latin words their meaning is not obvious for everyone. To identify the 10 main cloud types, you must remember 5 Latin words:
Cirrus: means tuft of hair. Used for high level clouds looking to hairs. As a prefix this word is used for all clouds at high level.
Alto: means in altitude. Used for mid level clouds.
Stratus: means layer. Used for the shape of stratiform clouds.
Cumulus: means heap. Used for the shape of cumuliform clouds.
Nimbus: means rain cloud.
So the cloud names come from their altitude and their shape and they can be summarised in this table and this picture:
From the 10 types shown above, 2 are missing in the table.
Cirrus, easy to identify by their shape and altitude.
Stratocumulus which is a hybrid of stratus and cumulus.
Note that cumulus can extend up to mid levels. This table is of course a simplification to remember cloud names.
Shapes are not difficult to identify, but altitude is not so easy.

Hello, there're resources with the weather radar for Brazil (available for free). You may check these topics with the references to the useful materials:

@Gkikas-LGPZ Afaik. base map tiles and associated styles (including which admin level label should be displayed for each map scale), are only handled and generated by the OSM service, not by Windy itself; Windy just adds data overlays over OSM base maps...
As a backcountry skier, being able to review the last 24 – 72 hours of wind history would be extremely helpful to understand where I'm likely to encounter slopes that have been wind-loaded with snow. This is frequently a major route planning consideration. Would be happy to pay for this as a "premium" feature.
Here are archives of observations, but those are monthly averages. Waiting for March results, it will possible to make comparison with pro-covid averages?

But I didn’t look in detail. May you find what you need.
