Short Version


The leading high cloud band can be observed in the IR (and WV) images over the Atlantic from 30W/45N to 18W/57N; in contrast to the schematics this is a case and/or a stage of development where the leading cloud band consists predominantly of high cloudiness. The long rear cloud band with warm tops can be seen from 32W/46N to 20W/57N.
