Nacreous Clouds, February 2016, Near Tain

The early evening of 1st February was a good time for seeing NACREOUS CLOUDs.  Storm Henry was all around us with heavy rainfall and high winds, but for a time in the late afternoon  areas of clear sky were seen.

The date and the time were right for a very low sun when people were out and about, and as DISCUSSED HERE the presence of stormy weather and jetstream activity may have helped these clouds to form.

Near Tain Nacreous Clouds were seen by Russell who sent us this picture, taken on 1st February and by Pat who saw them on the 29th of January.
