Interesting Clouds This MorningSeptember 27th, 2012 at 2:41 pm by Chad Evans 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!
