Learning Cloud Names

Here's a few websites with photographs which help sort out the different kinds of clouds and their names. I've been taking people outside and asking them to guess temperature, wind direction, wind speed, and humidity, and seeing how close we come. Our first lesson was to realize that if the wind was really blowing 35 mph, we would be in a lot of trouble. 17 mph was the real speed the other day, and that was fine and brisk.
