This photo was taken on Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, Colorado in front of the Boulder Creek Apartment Complex on October 25 at 6:33 PM. Based on the Skew-T Diagram shown above where the Temperature and Dew Point are become close together (at an altitude of approximately 3700 m) in addition to referencing the image shown above, I can infer that the clouds in the image are Altocumulus. In addition to this, the CAPE value of .17 indicates that the atmosphere was not stable. Also, the slopes of the adiabatic temperature lines and isotherms indicate an unstable atmosphere as well.
