KMOV Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt always has his head in the clouds! 
Kent took these photos with his iPhone on the way to work this 
afternoon. He tells us these are called Mare's Tails because the long 
wispy fibers look like a horses tail. Kent says they're actually 
cirrus clouds that are high in the atmosphere. These clouds indicate 
increasing wind speed with height.
