Reply To: Cavum cloud formation?

Hello Marcia, I believe Cavum clouds form when the droplets in a layer of cloud suddenly freeze into ice crystals and begin to fall (causing the fallstreak to form). This can happen when ice crystals fall onto the cloud layer from a higher cirrus cloud...

I see above the fallstreak in #305 thehead of a dog, a labradot to be specific. Anyway a nice composition. As is the one from the gathering in Colorado by Keelin. Here is one taken with the cloudspotter app at the former asperitas event.

Interesting layers in your image, Hans, and a nice fallstreak framing in Michael’s above. Below is from a gathering in Colorado.
