What does the humilis refer to?
Cumulus humilis is a type of low level, fair weather cloud, of minimal vertical extent, that look flattened. When you see them, it's unlikely that there'll be any rain in the next few hours.'Humilis' means 'humble' in Latin - they're 'never mind us, we're just floating along' sort of clouds, that we see in pleasant, calm skies.
Ha ha nice, poetic in fact.
