RE: Visual difference between clouds
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.
RE: About overlaying different types of data layers on maps
This has been already discussed but never developed
RE: Please update base map data.
My suggestion is also valid for countries names, not only for islands.
For example at zoom level 5 for USA, I would prefer to have no town shown and states names be in stronger letters more easy to read, not so light, not so transparent. Sometime they are difficult to read. It’s not really a problem for me, but I imagine for those who are bad at geography.
RE: Time series rainfall doesn't add up to map totals
Both of you are probably right. I understand that Rain accumulation map figures are from reference time of the model run. In the Meteogram if you show UTC time (in Settings select Display all time in UTC) you see missing hours from the run start in North America. Here in Europe we are closer to UTC and there are less discrepancies. It's just an assumption, I’ve not checked everywhere.
