WHAT DOES CIRROSTRATUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

cirrostratus

Cirrostratus cloud

Cirrostratus /ˌsɪroʊˈstrɑːtəs/ cloud is a high, thin, generally uniform stratiform genus-type, composed of ice-crystals. It is difficult to detect and is capable of forming halos when the cloud takes the form of thin cirrostratus nebulosus. The cloud has a fibrous texture with no halos if it is thicker cirrostratus fibratus. On the approach of a frontal system, the cirrostratus often begins as nebulosus and turns to fibratus. If the cirrostratus begins as fragmented fibratus it often means the front is weak. Cirrostratus is usually located above 5.5 km. Its presence indicates a large amount of moisture in the upper atmosphere. Cirrostratus at night causing a moon halo Cirrostratus cloud sometimes signals the approach of a warm front if it forms after cirrus and spreads from one area across the sky and thus may be signs that precipitation might follow in the next 12 to 24 hours or as soon as 6–8 hours if the front is fast moving. If the cirrostratus is broken fibratus it can mean that the front is weak and that stratus rather than nimbostratus will be the rain cloud.
