Having trouble telling a cumulus from a stratus cloud? In our video James Chubb explains how clouds form and how this can help you can tell one cloud from another. We’ve also put together a guide to identifying all the different cloud types and how clouds form on the Met Office website.
To help with observing clouds we’ve created this infographic. Feel free to share and use on your own website or blog, you can get the embed code and a printable version from our cloud spotting page.
If you spot any interesting clouds, why not take a picture and add them to our Flickr clouds group.
