*A barometer should be adjusted to show equivalent sea level pressure for the altitude at which it is to be used.
A change of 100 ft. in elevation will cause a decrease of 1/10th inch in the reading.

Mistral = strong cold dry northerly wind of southern Europe
Williwaw = sudden violent gust of cold land air common along mountainous coasts of high latitudes.

*rings around the moon show that, some place in the air above the ground, there is a floating thin layer of mist or cloud. The water drops of which are nearly the same size. Both water droplets and ice crystals are common objects in the upper air, and cannot be depended upon as weather forecasters. Some say rain within 2-3 days.


In northern hemisphere: stand with back to wind, low pressure to left and high pressure on right.
In southern hemisphere: stand with back to wind, low pressure to right and high pressure on left.

Cirrus = detached, delicate and fibrous appearance. Feather-like structure. Whitish color, isolated tufts, thin filaments, threads in form of feathers, curved or straight filaments end in tufts. C/b in parallel belts in a great circle. Appear to converge toward a horizon point.
Cirrostratus = thin, whitish sheet of clouds. Sometimes cover sky completely and give it a milky appearance (cirronebula) other times like a tangled web. Often produces halos around sun and moon. Appear to converge toward horizon.
Cirrocumulus = small globular masses or white flakes w/o shadows or very slight shadows. Arranged in groups and often in lines. Appear to converge toward horizon.
Altostratus = thick sheet of gray or bluish color, sometimes forming a compact mass of dark gray color and fibrous structure or a thin sheet resembling thick cirrostratus. Sun or moon may be seen dimly gleaming as though through a round glass. All changes peculiar to cirrostratus. Altocumulus=great waves. Largish globular masses, white or grayish, partly shaded, groups or lines, so closely packed their edges appear confused. Detached masses are generally larger and more compact resembling stratocumulous at the center of the group. But the thickness of the layer varies at times spread out and assume appearance of small waves or thin, slightly curved plates. At margin they form into finer flakes resembling cirrocumulus. Often spread in lines of one or two directions.
Stratocululus = large globular masses or rolls of dark clouds often covering the whole sky, especially in winter. Generally appears as gray layer irregularly broken up into masses often a wavy appearance resembling altocumulus. Sometimes appears in great rolls arranged in parallel lines and pressed close up against one another. Centers of rolls are dark color. Blue sky m/b seen in intervening spaces which are of a much lighter color. Not generally associated w/rain.
Nimbostratus = thick layer of dark clouds, w/o shape and w/ragged edges thru which steady rain or snow usually falls. Thru openings in these clouds an upper layer of Cirrostratus or Altostratus may be seen almost invariably. If a nimbostratus layer separates up into shreds in a strong wind, or if small loose clouds are visible floating underneath a large nimbostratus, the cloud may be described as Fractonimbus or the "Scud" clouds of sailors.
Cumulus = Woolpack = thick clouds of which the upper surface is dome-shaped and exhibits protuberances while the base is horizontal. A diurnal ascension movement is almost always noticeable. When opposite the sun, the surfaces facing observer have a greater brilliance than the margins of the protuberances. When light falls aslant, as is usually the case, these throw deep shadows. When on the same side of the observer as the sun, they appear dark w/bright edges. True cumulus have well-defined upper and lower limits, but in strong winds a broken cloud resembling cumulus is often seen in which the detached portions undergo continual changes=Fractocumulus.
Cumulonimbus = Thundercloud or Showercloud. Heavy masses of cloud rising in the form of mountains, turrets, or anvils, generally surmounted by a sheet or screen of fibrous appearance (False Cirrus) and having at its base a mass of cloud similar to Nimbostratus. From the base local showers of rain or snow occasionally of hail or soft hail usually fall. Sometimes the upper edges assume the compact form of Cumulus and from massive peaks round which delicate False Cirrus floats. At other times the edges themselves separate into fringe of filaments similar to Cirrus clouds. This last form is particularly common in spring showers. The front of thunderclouds of wide extent frequently presents the form of a large arc spread over a portion of a uniformly brighter sky. Stratus=A uniform layer of cloud resembling a fog but not resting on the ground. When this sheet is broken up into irregular shreds in a wind, or by the summits of mountains, it may be called Fractostratus.

*Note: The attention of mariners is especially called to the Cirrus as it usually means barometric depressions. If the Cirrus appears in radiating bands crossing the sky, the point of convergence of these bands should be noted; if in the form of a cloud bank or sheet upon the horizon, the center or point of greatest density should be noted, as this will sometimes serve to indicate in a general manner the direction of the center of any cyclonic disturbance.

10=completely overcast

*Waterspout=a whirling, funnel-shaped cloud, first observed as a pendant from the mass of the storm cloud above. Seems to grow downwards, tapering, toward the water surface, which is violently agitated, and finally (when the spout is fully developed) appears to be drawn up to meet the cloud from above. This is deceptive, as the bulk of the water is carried along by the whirling spout is condensed from the atmosphere, and, even when the spout is formed over a salt-water surface, is found to be fresh. Water spouts occur most frequently over the warm seas of the tropics.
