Altocumulus perlucidus clouds invading the sky or are they showing energy transfer in the Earths Electric weather system?
Altocumulus perlucidus clouds invaded the skies of Malta on 3rd June 2010. Was the invasion of the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds combined with Cirrus fibratus clouds and Altocumulus undulatus part of a weather circuit? Part of the Earths weather global electric circuit?
The speed that the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds invaded the sky was stunning.
The 4 images above show the line of cloud that was over Malta and where the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds invaded (patterned clouds with gaps between them). The images show each side in both directions. The clouds appeared to go from 2 cloud bases, was 1 or both of these variations of Cirrus Spissatus (cloud base seen with thunderstorms) or a weather energy point?
The Cirrus fibratus (long lines of Cirrus clouds) appears to link the cloud bases. Are the Cirrus fibratus being blown away from one cloud base to the other or are they natural power lines for the cloud system?
invading Altocumulus perlucidus clouds
Although the rest of the cloud was not moving fast or hardly moving at all the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds appeared rapidly in the sky, going down the line in a tight band. This only took a few minutes. It seemed as thought the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds were not moving with the wind but were being formed along the line.
Also notice that the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds also branched off or formed another power line from the base cloud. Similar to circuits needed pathways and occluded fronts having hot/cold energy lines going into or out of them.
There are a number of different layers of clouds in this system that are all above each other. Is energy being transferred between the layers and creating the cloud types we see?
In the lowest level a single line of Cumulus clouds appeared, these did literally seem to appear out of nowhere. Then above them you have the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds and Cirrus fibratus clouds.
As the energy is transferred between the atmospheres layers this creates the different cloud types. Its all part of the Earth's weather Global Electric Circuit.
Or is it just normal weather and hot/cold air and convection currents? Which is still the transfer of energy and potential energy differences.
When Cumulus increases rapidly, a Cirro-stratus is frequently seen to form around its summit, reposing thereon as on a mountain, while the former Cloud continues discernible in some degree through it. This stat of things continues but a short time. The Cirro-stratus speedily becomes denser and spreads, while the superior part of the CUmulus extends itself and passes into it, the base continueing as it was, while the convex protuberances change their position till they present themselves laterally and downward. More rearely, the Cumulus performs this evolution by itself, and its superior part then constitutes the incumbent Cirr-stratus.
In either case a large lofty dense Cloud is formed, which may be compared to a Mushroom with a very thick short stem. But when a whole sky is crowded with this Modification, the appearances are indistinct. The Cumulus rises through the interstices of the superior Clouds ... The distinct Cumulo-stratus is formed in the interval between the first appearance of the fleecy Cumulus and the commencement of rain, while the lower atmosphere is yet dry; also during the approach of Thunder-storms: the indistinct appearance of it is chiefly in the longer or shorter intervals of showers of rain, snow or hail.

Altocumulus undulatus - wave hello and goodbye
After the Altocumulus perlucidus clouds suddenly appeared then Altocumulus undulatus formed along the cloud line. The lower version first seen was largish but then the Altocumulus undulatus cloud formation appeared in many places of the cloud system. They lines/waves appeared in different directions even if close to each other.
A short while after the Altocumulus undulatus formed in many places 'cloud holes' appeared between the waves. These were multiple groups of cloud holes.
The Altocumulus perlucidus clouds carried on being formed along the line very quickly, they then thickened and changed into what looked like Cirrocumulus cloud.
