Baffling mackerel sky phenomenon surprises many skywatchers in Mexico

This baffling mackerel sky surprised many residents of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico on March 26, 2016.

And guess how it is created?

A mackerel sky is a common term for a sky with rows of cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds displaying an undulating, rippling pattern similar in appearance to fish scales.

This is caused by high altitude atmospheric waves. Cirrocumulus appears almost exclusively with cirrus some way ahead of a warm front and is a reliable forecaster that the weather is about to change.







When these high clouds progressively invade the sky and the barometric pressure begins to fall, precipitation associated with the disturbance is likely about 6 to 12 hours away. A thickening and lowering of cirrocumulus into middle-étage altostratus or altocumulus is a good sign the warm front or low has moved closer and it may start raining within less than six hours.

The old rhymes “Mackerel sky, not twenty-four hours dry” and “Mares’ tails and mackerel scales make lofty ships to carry low sails” both refer to this long-recognized phenomenon.

Other phrases in weather lore take mackerel skies as a sign of changeable weather. Examples include “Mackerel sky, mackerel sky. Never long wet and never long dry”, and “A dappled sky, like a painted woman, soon changes its face”.


Spectacular mammatus clouds over York, UK

These spectacular mammatus clouds swept across the sky over York on March 27, 2016 transforming the city into a post-apocalyptical scenery.

The distinctive Mammatus clouds are believed to have been caused by turbulence in the cloud base due to a change of weather.

The Met Office says Mammatus clouds are among the more unusual and distinctive formations.

They usually form with large cumulonimbus clouds, particular when they are forming large thunderstorms.

Storm Katie has seen gusts of up to 105mph battering England and Wales, with several flights diverted from airports and major bridges shut.

In York, the rain is expected to have petered out by this afternoon with wind speeds dropping as the day goes on.
