Mackerel sky

The weather brought a wealth of colour and intricately designed cirrocumulus clouds over Camrose County near Bashaw on Thurs. Sept. 20. Last week held a variety of temperatures from -1.8 degrees to 11 degrees Celsius. When these clouds cover the majority of the sky, they can look like the scales of a fish, which is why it is nicknamed ‘mackerel sky’. Cirrocumulus clouds are common in winter and indicate fair, but cold, weather.
