I Have Seen the Polar Vortex!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Yesterday at Alpine Valley Ski Area, White Lake, Michigan:  I saw this beautiful cloud configuration in the sky during a lesson.  I wasn't sure what it was, but I'd never seen anything like it in the sky before.  It was swirling, and the wind picked up and the temperature dropped.    I felt this was cool enough to share with you all!

Living in Michigan exposes you to a lot of fascinating weather images.  

That is certainly a very fascinating photo.  Thanks for sharing.

Interesting met. phenomena. Seems to occur @ upper(20k) wind driven conditions. Cirrus Cumulus or Alto Cumulus formations. Thanks for a special photo.
