Streets of Cloud

Unusual 'cloud streets' spotted over Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire

Spectacular cloud formations known as 'cloud streets' have been spotted in southern England.

The long streaks of cloud were seen by BBC Weather Watchers in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire on Thursday evening.

BBC weather presenter Simon King said the clouds are not uncommon in the UK but these stood out against the fading light of the sky.
"Cloud streets are essentially long rows of cumulus cloud aligned in the sky with the wind direction," he said.
The phenomenon was spotted in Oxford and Tackley in Oxfordshire, and Little Rissington and Cirencester in Gloucestershire.
