Let us begin today’s cloud lesson by examining the perfect example of Altocumulus perlucidus translucidus:
The rains of March
From NOAA’s WRF-GFS model run based on last evening’s global data, this beauty below. A model cannot calculate more areas of rain and snow in, and west of the Rockies, than this one! So, headin’ for a big change here in the West, as we deserve, after our AZ non-winter. See caption for details.
BTW, Science mag, in their tradition of catchy, amusing titles in their plain-language summaries of peer-reviewed technical articles that appear later, ones that are generally not comprehensible, used this The Who song excerpt when titling an article about the Argentine “tawny crazy ant” (I did NOT make that name up!) invasion now affecting the southern US: “Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss”, a title cribbed from the great The Who song, “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” Feb 28th issue, p974.
BTW, its hard to write a sentence that sounds grammatically fluid and correct when writing about the works of the great The Who band.
Speaking of ants, I used to collect big red ants when I was a kid and try to transplant them into my back yard; kind of start a local big red ant invasion. I thought you would like to know that about me.
