Cloud Layer Heights MET

Cloud bases are broken down into three rough layers by their base: 0-6500' (low level), 6500'-23000' (medium, "alto" level) and 16000'-45000' (upper, "cirro" level). There is no particular distinction of behaviour at these levels, and these figures simply have to be known as an exam fact.
