Some crazy-looking lenticular clouds near Steele, North Dakota, away from mountainous areas.
Pictures were taken by Jacob Morse on June 19, 2022. Here is the Twitter post where they first appeared:
Normally, these lens-shaped orographic wave clouds form when the air is stable and winds blow across hills and mountains from the same or similar direction at different heights through the troposphere.
But near Steele, everything is flat! There was enough rising and sinking air in the atmosphere from thunderstorm outflow.
Weather warfare at its best!
