December Skies

For the first couple of days of December we have had clear skies meaning frosty mornings and sunny days. The blue skies have been punctuated by the high altitude wispy cirrus clouds, formed by ice crystals. The vapour trails of planes (contrails) are also very visible; indeed these can also go on to form cirrus clouds as they spread.Photo of Cirrus Clouds and Contrails

However, warmer moist air has now arrived so the sky is blanketed by thick cloud, which I think can be described as “Wood Pigeon Grey”.Photo of wood pigeon sat in tree
