After much discussion on high and mid-level clouds the previous weekends, this weekend we will discuss low level clouds. Low level clouds are distinctive as they tend to look much closer than other clouds. Low level clouds must be below 6,500 ft, but can grow vertically into the higher atmosphere. They primarily consist of water droplets with some supercooled liquid droplets. If they continue to grow vertically, the structure can change. Although, like the high level and mid-level clouds, there can be many different types of low level clouds. The main low level clouds that will be discussed today is; Stratus, Cumulus, and Stratocumulus.
