Ground and Sky ovservations were made at 4:30 PM MDT. The ground temperature was 28 *F and the cloud temperature was -25*F. Assuming a dry adiobatic lapse rate of 5.4 *F per 1,000 feet, the cirrus clouds above NearSys Station had a base of 9,800 feet.

The Boise METAR reports clear skies up to 12,000 feet.

In this case, cirrus clouds are 2,000 higher than indicated.
