LENTICULAR CLOUDS
In the West
Take a look at some of these incredible clouds captured over Mt. Rainier. They are called "lenticular clouds"; caused when the air flow is just right so when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds.  Depending on how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing clouds formations as we've seen so far today.  It's usually a sign of rain within 24 hours because typically the moist flow that precedes a storm around here is the perfect set up for these clouds.
