The photos, taken with the camera of a Moto G5 Plus cell phone at 4:00 pm (UTC-3h) through the windows of a moving vehicle, show an interesting afternoon display of Undulatus asperatus clouds over Rio de Janeiro. Cloudy and rainy weather has prevailed in the city since a cold front pushed colder air onto the region 4 days ago. In spite of their frightening appearance, such formations usually indicate that no immediate rain should be expected.

Stunning sky! The official name is Asperitas, as it was set up by WMO in 2015.
