A low cloud layer, usually very patchy. To "scud run" is to fly just below a layer of low clouds.
Ragged low clouds, usually stratus fractus. Most often applied when such clouds are moving rapidly beneath a layer of nimbostratus.

Ragged, wind-driven low clouds, mist, or rain.
A name given by sailors to the lowest clouds, which are mostly observed in squally weather.
The common name for stratus fractus clouds. They are small, ragged, low cloud fragments that are not attached to a larger cloud base (such as the base of a thunderstorm). They are often seen with and behind cold fronts and thunderstorm gust fronts. These clouds do not produce severe weather. When they are near, or attached to the base of the thunderstorm, they can be mistaken for funnel clouds.
(or Fractus) - small, ragged, low cloud fragments that are unattached to a larger cloud base and often seen with and behind cold fronts and thunderstorm gust fronts
Small, ragged, low cloud fragments that are unattached to a larger cloud base and often seen with and behind cold fronts and thunderstorm gust fronts. Such clouds generally are associated with cool moist air, such as thunderstorm outflow.
Low fragments of clouds, usually stratus fractus, that are unattached and below a layer of higher clouds, either nimbostratus or cumulonimbus. They are often along and behind cold fronts and gust fronts, being associated with cool moist air, such as an outflow from a thunderstorm. When observed from a distance, they are sometimes mistaken for tornadoes.
