Stratus nebolosus is a fog in the sky



  • The previous post introduced the last low cloud type - Stratus. The most common form of it is Stratus nebulosus (St neb). Let's have a look at this huge species.

    Stratus nebulosus is, in general, recognizable by its look. It looks like enormous fog hovering above our heads. In mountains, it can even quietly change from fog to cloud and back again. Despite its magnificent look, it can cause several problems with visibility. It is a grey, uniform fog that can cause trouble for example at airports.

    Stratus nebulosus can cause some light precipitation such as drizzle or light snow. More probability to form Stratus nebulosus is in winter right before sunrise or in the afternoon.
