An interesting satellite picture day of clouds across the bay of Biscay from the NOAA Worldview website (fig 1). If anything, the grey scale image from the Met Office taken a little later looks even better (fig 2). As far as I can tell it all looks like a sheet of low stratocumulus cloud at under the anticyclone, with a cloud base of around 4,000 feet, but I could be wrong.
