Types of clouds

Regular cloud-watchers can distinguish
altocumulus in their rare lenticular form,
identify translucidus undulatus and
nimbo-suinus, as opposed to noctilucent,
differentiate virga from mamma and pannus,
recognize the hazards of funnels and scuds,
or take shelter from advancing shelves and walls,
paying attention to nature’s cues,
since cell phones stop working in storms.

To meet today’s NaPoWriMo challenge, I had to make pigs fly in this acrostic poem. This meant inventing the nimbo-suinus, a dark storm cloud shaped like a boar. Fortunately, I was able to find a matching photo.
