Wild and Crazy Clouds Over N Georgia this Morning!!

Did you get to see them this morning? My son, and future meteorologist Garrett, looked into the sky and saw this cloud structure and said “Dad, what in the world is that??” I said

“G, that is a unique cloud structure called undulatus asperatus”. He replied with “Those are asparagus clouds???”, LOL. They have a crazy name, but they are the rarest of all clouds to see. As as matter of fact, they normally don’t happen in this part of the country. Most of the time they happen in the central plains states after big thunderstorms. The name is for “big ripples in water” or “rough waves” and can be quite intimidating but only produce areas of no rain, or light rain.

The Cloud Appreciation Society proposed these clouds as a new cloud formation in 2009 and will be the first new cloud named since 1951!!!

Here is a cool gallery of all the images y’all posted on my Facebook page!
