US National Weather Service Gaylord Michigan This morning I captured these clouds while taking a photo of the USCG Mackinac in port at Cheboygan. I'm at a loss for what they are. Can you tell what kind of clouds these are? The odd straight line clouds that look like tufts. Maybe stratocumolous??? Too bad I didn't have my camera with me for a clearer look at them. thanks

Clouds will gradually begin to clear from west to east after midnight tonight. A nice day is expected Friday, especially inland where highs will reach the mid to upper 50s. Sorry Grand Marais, much chillier there with north winds. Minor river flooding issues continue in several locations across the area, check water.weather.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=mqt for details. ...
