Stratocumulus clouds above the Isle of Wight have led to Islanders reaching for their cameras this afternoon (Monday).
This unusual and impressive scene has dominated the skyline since around 14:20.
Jamie Russell, Chief Forecaster at IW Met Service explains:
“Whenever we get high pressure in the winter months we tend to see this type of cloud. Its the boundary between a layer of warm and cold air where condensation occurs – it’s a normal winter high-pressure cloud and nothing to worry about!”
