2 types of Clouds:

Layer Clouds: Stratus.. Good Weather
Heap Clouds(Cauliflower): CB.. Cumulonimbus... Heavy rain
(Last maybe not more than 1hr so..
Can wait it out)
Cumulus... Smaller Heap clouds..

Kind of like above... Mix with some layers clouds.
So..
Fair Weather.. Like Showers... Maybe.

Weather Forcast:
For our region...

December: Year End... Plenty of water from South China Sea.
So.. Plenty of moisture...
Means.. Heavy continous rain can be expected.
Also gives us this nice cool weather we are experiencing now.

As for other part of the year..
It's
The sun the brings up the water
and CB (Cumulonimbus) forms...
Expect Down Pour in the afternoon...
That's when our bikers get drench...
So... sit our with a teh tarik

Always carry rain gear when touring north....

Some refresher training on geography during my school days.

Cumulonimbus is something that is not very welcome by the bikers. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/angel.png)

Yah!... Cumulonibus.. Also Call CB!
Is the "Mother of all Clouds"
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/upsidedown.gif)
Cause all those turbulence in your flight..
Crashes a lot of aircraft during landing & take-off with their strong
Down Gust...
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif)
One big lump of CB can cover 50km..
So..
No much for bikers to avoid it..
But the down pour will last normally 30mins.
SO... take a break... have a teh..
and proceed with your ride after the worst is over.
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/helmet.png)
Usually... on the road/highway.. we
can see the weather ahead.. so..
Plan your approach.. or hide.. ha ha..
Good decisions will means safe & enjoyable rides.
