Interesting Clouds This Morning

September 27th, 2012 at 2:41 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

We had patchy fog & low stratus clouds this morning from low-level inversion trapping moisture.

Debby caught a great shot of the mechanics occurring this morning on I-74 near Crawfordsville.  You see interestingly-shaped “scarf” or “cap” clouds forming just underneath the inversion.  A solid overcast had not formed, but thermals at the surface from heating were hitting that inversion & causing bulges in it.

As the thermals bulged the lid, the moisture condensed & the interesting cloud elements formed.

Thank you Debby for this great picture!
