What are Cirrocumulus clouds?

Published On: Jul 22 2011 03:22:40 PM EDT

Cirrocumulus clouds resemble small, rounded white puffs in long rows.

The small ripples in these clouds sometimes look like the scales of a fish.

Cirrocumulus clouds are more often seen in the winter and are usually a sign of fair, but cold weather.


In tropical regions, they may indicate an approaching hurricane.
