Cirrostratus Fibratus

‘Fibratus’ is derived from Latin meaning ‘fibrous’, indicating the threadlike tufts of cloud which covered much of the sky. Cirrostratus fibratus is formed by strong winds at high altitudes and are usually preceders of light rain. This photo was taken in Christchurch, New Zealand.
