    Default Request interpretation of Met abbreviation.

    The following text is from a weather forecast for Bomber Commands operation to Chemnitz, March 5/6, 1945:

    “Route home, similar to route out except threat of rain or snow between 5 degrees east and the channel, with thick layers of Sc and As, but a good chance of a lane between 8,000 and 15,000”

    I presume "Sc" is Stratocumulus, but what does does "As" mean? Altocumulus? What are the dangers flying through this type of cloud?
