Available observational evidence regarding occurrence of double cloud bands, one in each hemisphere, over tropical oceans is reviewed. An examination of their locations appears to suggest that these may be related to maxima in ocean surface temperature. Significant asymmetry and discontinuity are noticed over areas which are affected by cold ocean currents and monsoons.
