Cloud Watchers: May 31, 2010
Around 7pm last night some strange clouds rolled in. Dark, low hanging clouds turned everyone’s attention to the sky. Wind could be heard in the distance and soon it was upon us. There was only a little rain involved, but it was quite impressive.
These clouds are called arcus clouds, or shelf clouds, and are sometimes associated the front edges of a cold front. Here are some photos of the clouds that passed over.
