Mid Level Cloud Types Alto Cumulus, Alto Stratus, Nimbo Stratus

Alto Cumulus are mid level small clouds clouds called cloud-lets. These form layers or patches in the form of rounded clumps. Unlike Cirrus they are mostly composed of droplets although some ice crystals maybe present. They tend to be white or grey and the sides away from the sun are shaded. The shading is the difference between Cirrus Cumulus

Nimbostratus are medium level clouds that tend to be grey in color and are associated with heavy continuous rain or Snow. The clouds tend to be featureless and can be thick enough to block out the sun. Located between 2000ft to 10000ft. Nimbo stratus are not associated with Thundery storms, Hail though.
