Just caught sight of this advancing front  passing over the house at 8.50am  SE >NNW (Just now). If this isn't a front someone please shout up. It was losing structure and impact quite quickly so I took it from home ,no time to drive to a higher location.

So it is.. Cheers,Brian. 15 minutes later the  whole sky was  moving SW > NE.  with the  Low. I  googled contrail smear and saw similar photos...hadn't heard of that expression before and didn't know that such a large sheet could develop.

That's something I haven't seen in a long time - a blue sky I mean  Smiley. Nice image John, a sundog would have set it off completely.
