Image Caption: Extratropical cyclone

Well organized spiral cloud patterns typical of an extratropical occluded cyclone in this high oblique. This storm occurred in the southern hemisphere near 40deg. S, 125deg. W so that cloud bands spiral clockwise around the center of low pressure. The cumulus cloud bank extending across the top of the photograph is associated with a cold front. (From Skillman and Shenk 1977)
