Mackeral sky is alto-cumulus or cirro-cumulus.

Mares tails is classic cirrus mostly. Usually occurring in pre-frontal NW to W winds.


Both pretty good surf indicator clouds.

How can watching and being aware them help predict local weather :?:
The ants in central Qld were the worst I've ever seen them, all carrying larvae to higher ground.

You should have got a fistful and shoved them your pants.

There's your festive season.

Shit's getting real.
They've actually been seen as far south as Melbourne. The world is fucked.

Just checked up on cloud types and you are 100 percent right Steve.
I always thought stratus were high level but they are in fact those drifting low level clouds. A bit like smoke drifting.

I was up in Cairns a while after one of the cyclones and they said that a week before the cyclone all these sea birds flew in and roosted under eaves and in trees around town.

pre-frontal cirrus swooping in from the W, cumulus towers seaward. Classic May sky.
