Lenticular Clouds

Sept 2, 2016

Lenticular clouds are saucer shaped and form from shear in the upper atmosphere. So I was a little concerned when I got up this morning and saw a number of them scattered around (if you want to see some real beauties, Google ‘lenticular clouds Patagonia’).

Wind out of the south was forecast for our drive to Yellowstone so I was worried about trailer sway. Particularly since the first half of the drive was east on I-90 so the wind would be hitting us broadside.

Turns out that the wind was just starting to build when we turned south on Hwy 89 so no swaying although we fought a headwind the rest of the day.

Here’s an example that I shot out the front windshield while holding Carol off trying to take my camera away 🙂
