These are thin fibrous clouds composed entirely of ice which have a distinctive hooked appearance resulting from wind shear across the falling ice particles. 6.Estimated Height or Temperature: The cloud is estimated to be at approximately 30000 ft above the ground. 7.Weather Situation and Web Weather Map: These clouds were formed on the northeast side of a warm front that stretched from the Minneapolis, Minnesota area southeastward to Dubuque, Iowa (see figure xx). 8.Theory on How It Was Formed: These clouds were likely formed by the rising currents of air over the top of the warm front.
