PostHeaderIcon Lenticular Cloud

a cloud type with elements that resemble smooth lenses or almonds, and that are more or less isolated. These clouds are caused by a wave-like wind pattern created by mountains or another orographic cause, such as sloping terrain. Lenticular clouds also indicate turbulence down-stream from whatever generated them. Viewed from the ground, the clouds appear stationary as the air rushes through them.
