2:00 pm Sunday: Interesting clouds

If you look east, you can spot some interesting clouds right now. They are very small cumulus clouds but they are trying to drop precipitation. The result is a foggy appearance underneath the clouds. We call the precip that evaporates before it can reach the ground virga.

Normally, clouds this small can’t produce precip. However, our atmosphere is such today that these clouds can. I tried to take some pictures of them but the pics didn’t turn out well.

So, if you get a chance to go out and look east look for these clouds. They remind me of jellyfish. I’ve only seen this to our east so far. Other clouds today may look like this, too, until that cap breaks and the clouds can grow vertically.
