Original Tweet and Picture: @uwaos100_2014 Cirrus clouds at Picnic Point. A warm front
is moving in. #GrTri
Location and circumstance: This picture was taken while walking along the path on Picnic
Point in Madison.
Direction: The camera was pointing northeast and at the horizon
Description: Mares tail cirrus. These are thin fibrous clouds composed entirely of ice
which have a distinctive hooked appearance resulting from wind shear across the falling
ice particles.
Estimated Height or Temperature: The cloud is estimated to be at approximately 30000
ft above the ground.
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).
Theory on How It Was Formed: These clouds were likely formed by the rising currents of
air over the top of the warm front .
