Cirrus clouds were flying high over northern Arizona recently on what was a beautiful February day. The cirrus were in advance of an upper level storm system crossing Arizona. These cirrus were very diffuse with a considerable amount of falling ice crystals. Surface temperatures were near 60 degrees.
