Caption: Cirrus cloud in jetstream. Long plumes of cirrus cloud in the sky above a lake. Under the influence of high-level jetstream winds, these clouds acquire this elongated appearance. Depending on their shape, cirrus clouds are also known as "Mare's Tails" or "Stringers". Cirrus is a high- altitude (6,000-12,000 metres height) ice crystal cloud which forms delicate filaments or fibres. It is usually associated with fair weather.
