Development of thunderstorm?

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, May 23, 2009
This morning, went for my weekly supermarketing at Giant Tampines. I would usually be one of the many to arrive first at Giant when it opens at 8am.

On the way there, I saw something which I have never witnessed before- Altocumulus clouds. The whole sky was full of it..so pretty and amazing!



When we reached Giant, I quickly went down the car and snapped more pictures of the sky!

Check out the reflection!





The altocumulus approach can sometimes be disturbing, for the cloud has a dark and somewhat frightening appearance but since it was my first time witnessing such clouds, I was more excited than frightened.

Even as I was going up the travellator, I was snapping pictures away. Think the strangers thought I was crazy making a big fuss over such a thing. I was practically like a wide-eyed kid in a candy store-all excited and amazed.



As Wikipedia puts it, "altocumulus often are seen preceding a cold front, and their presence on a warm, humid, summer morning frequently signals the development of thunderstorm". So was it true? Not at all! No thunderstorm happened that day, instead the weather remained hot and humid. Arggh. When will this weather end?
