John Metcalf of CityLab.com recently posted an article about “asperitas,” the first new cloud type identified since 1951 and which the WMO will include in its revised 2016 International Cloud Atlas. The WMO have asked the Cloud Appreciation Society to provide a photograph if this new cloud type and we have recently launched a competition to find the best image with the winner to be announced at the Escape to the Clouds Conference in September.

John’s article has some wonderful images and you can read it in full here.
