Fish Scale Clouds

Looking up at the sky is always a rewarding experience, more so if you love rains and clouds. Clouds form many interesting patterns in the sky. No two cloud formations look the same. We are treated with a new piece of art every time we look at a cloudy sky.

This picture was taken two months back from my home. This pattern of clouds is called fish scale clouds or Mackerel Sky, named so because of its resemblance to fish scales. The fish scale patterns are a sign that rains would arrive soon. It rained on the day I took this picture.

We all can do our own weather forecasting by such basic observations. Do you make your own weather forecasting?
