Some interesting clouds interrupted what was supposed to be 5 days of sun, they should be gone within a couple hours.

I decided to reduce the brightness to really show the pattern, which might otherwise be difficult to discern in a photo

Thanks, it made the weather event worth it. I scrambled to put all my xeric plants up that might not appreciate a surprise Gulf Coast downpour. All we got out of it was some intermittent sprinkling. I’ll wait until the morning to put everything back out.

Wonder what the Latin name is for those cloud formations.

It looks like a painting!

Latin/ species name ( Yes, clouds are divided into species.. :winkie: ) is Undulatus asperatus and are a sign of Atmospheric turbulence at  X  level in the Atmosphere, especially as a large Thunderstorm/ or complex of strong storms is in the decaying phase.. Quite often, they are visible indicators of  what are called Gravity Waves, which move away from the storm like ripples on a pond. Those Atmospheric waves can set the stage for development of new storms somewhere several dozen/ hundreds of miles away later on.  Arcus, which look like Asperatus, form at the lower layer of the Atmosphere along the leading edge of Thunderstorm outflows.. These too often mark waves of turbulence as they radiate out and away from the parent storm.
