What is a Lenticular cloud?
Lenticular clouds are stationary clouds that are formed mostly in the Earth’s troposphere. According to Fox Weather, the clouds are usually found either over or floating near the mountain tops. The clouds formed in the troposphere are usually on the cusp of saturation point. The air that flows at the top of the mountain is cool enough to enable the lenticular cloud stay at a saturation point. As the air over the mountains sinks, the clouds slowly start getting warmer and immediately disappear. According to Fox Weather, the formation of clouds indicates the chances of precipitation in the region within the next few days.
