Clouds are the equivalent of an ever-evolving painting in the sky. They have the ability to make for sunrises magnificent and sunsets spectacular. We’re surrounded by clouds almost every day of our lives. Doesn’t it seems like cloud identification should be something that comes naturally to us?
So why isn’t it? Maybe it’s because cloud names and terms are all in latin, and latin names scare us. Maybe it’s because we think we need a Ph.D in Atmospheric Sciences or Meteorology (not true!). Whatever the reason is, this site has been created to do one thing: help you easily identify and classify all different types of clouds.
The information below was created as a comprehensive guide to cloud identification and classification. Consider this page an instruction manual to the rest of the site. Let’s get started! ⛅️
