See a nimbostratus and you'll be getting wet for a long time
The extremities of these filaments are always thin and never terminated by tufts or hooks. This species is found mainly in the genera cirrus and cirrostratus. Cirrostratus fibratus may develop from cirrus fibratus or cirrus spissatus.
Sufficiently translucent to reveal the position of the sun, or through which higher clouds may be discerned.
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free. Let us all be grateful for a land so fair As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer." wriiten by Irving Berlin in 1918 while serving in the US Army. He revised it and released it as sung by Kate Smith on Armistice Day November 11, 1938

They are formed from small water droplets of near uniform size. When the sun is properly positioned, mostly behind thick clouds, these thin clouds almost coherently diffract sunlight, and like a rainbow, different wavelengths are diffracted different amounts. Thus the rainbow effect.

Usually low altitude. "Cottonwool" clouds.
They can exist as individual towers or form a line of towers called a squall line. Fueled by vigorous convective updrafts (sometimes in excess 50 knots), the tops of cumulonimbus clouds can easily reach 39,000 feet (12,000 meters) or higher. Associated with powerful thunderstorms known as supercells.
A ring of cloud seen occasionally at the top of a wall cloud (usually in wall clouds that are rotating) where the wall cloud is attached to the updraft base above it.
Consisting of condensed water droplets
Near or on the ground, often appearing beneath a condensation funnel and surrounding the base of a tornado.
Frequently visible in satellite imagery along a front or other boundary.
A low sun angle creates the striation effect by differential shadowing of varying cloud levels.
Usually is observed extending from the wall cloud toward the north or northeast. Cloud tags extending from a wall cloud towards a precipitation core. An area of condensation consisting of laminar ban.
Indicative of severe turbulence at that layer of the atmosphere.
When the sky is broken or overcast.
