OSWOA - Cloudy Sky 2-3

The most common types of low clouds include cumulus, stratocumulus and stratus; when low stratus clouds are raining, they are usually referred to as nimbostratus. Middle clouds include altocumulus and altostratus; high clouds include cirrus, cirrocumulus, and cirrostratus. Cumulonimbus clouds also known as thunderheads(thunderstorms) will often span all three cloud heights, with bases ranging from 1,000'-5,000' (304.8m-1,524m) and tops sometimes reaching upwards of 60,000' (18,288m).
