Snowing NIMBOSTRATUS (LOW) Photo taken by Lin Chambers at NASA Langley on February 27, 2002 during a late-season snow. Note the extremely uniform and featureless nimbostratus cloud which is dropping snow on the ground. Nimbostratus clouds are very difficult to photograph, because they are very uniform and offer little contrast. Generally nimbostratus clouds form rain, but snow is somewhat more photogenic.

Fractus clouds (scuds): small, ragged cloud fragments usually found under an ambient nimbostratus cloud base; drift rapidly with the wind; rain evaporates and mixes with the air, which becomes saturated and a lower layer of clouds or fog may form beneath the original clouds base (scud)

Captivating Clouds (2): Nimbostratus Cloud (rain-layered):The Nimbostratus clouds are almost always an indication of rain.They're grey and foggy-like withoutanydistinct shape or form. They also can be seen hanging very low to the ground and covering most of the sky. If you catch yourself under a blanket of this type of cloud, be sure to have an umbrella athand.

This image of nimbostratus clouds was taken in Seattle, WA. Notice the rain falling out of the cloud as well as the rainbow! ( Courtesy of Peggy LeMone)
