Undulatus Asperatus

No, not the latest addition to the Hogwarts spell book. This is a new type of cloud that the Cloud Appreciation Society hopes will be formally recognised by the World Meteorological Society and added to the International Cloud Atlas, making it the first new class of cloud to be added since 1951.

There’s a fantastic picture of undulatus asperatus over Shiehallion, Perthshire, on this site:
