Mt Rainiers Cool Show Last Friday
Take a look at some of these incredible clouds captured over Mt. Rainier here last Friday. It's usually a sign of rain within 24 hours because typically the moist flow that precedes a storm around here is the perfect set up for these clouds. I guess these are called "lenticular clouds" and they are caused when the air flow is just right so when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds. Depending on how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing clouds formations as we' were able to see on last Friday......I was so busy And I didnt get a chance to post these till now...Pretty cool eh?
