A North Pacific extratropical cyclone as seen from TIROS VIII, pass 764/762, camera I, frame 13. The easternmost cloud band suggests frontal clouds, the center band with transverse elements appears to be associated with the jet stream, while the westernmost thin band is highly unusual. Picture of the Month , "Monthly Weather Review," May 1964.

The first of the "Monthly Weather Review" Picture of the Month series, as published in January 1963. This first picture shows a series of actinoform clouds extending along the parallel 7 degrees South Latitude and between 87 and 97 West Longitude. This cloud type was not even suspected prior to TIROS photography.

Intense low-level convection over the Gulf of Mexico as extremely cold air flows over warmer Gulf of Mexico waters. Very narrow parallel cloud bands begin near the northern shore and become much larger convective elements to the south. TIROS X photograph, pass 3039/3038, camera 1, frame 7. Picture of the Month, "Monthly Weather Review," July 1966.
