Pileus

A nice pileus cloud was seen topping a small thundershower north of Fargo yesterday afternoon. ┬áRapid rise in the cumulus cloud cause the mid-level wind to rise and fall over the building cumulus creating the pileus cloud. ┬áThis photo is from one of our viewers, I didn’t have a camera handy when I saw it yesterday (I need a cell phone).
