Lenticular Clouds sometimes form here SE of Mount Adams, on the top of the next wave after the wind flows over the mountain. Air flows up and over the mountain, down into a trough and pulls the moisture back up to the top of the next wave, where it collects in circling winds and forms stacks of Lennies. Bruce Sussman on KOIN 6 Local weather once said that some call these cloud formations Lenticular Stacks, or Mountain Wave Clouds, or even Spaceship clouds, but Darlisa has her own nick name for them, her Lennies!

This formation was January 18, 2013 NE of White Salmon, Washington
