New Zealand Lenticulars


It’s been quite windy the last few days, but warming up here in Southern Otago, New Zealand.  Spring skiing and ski-touring season. Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are classic indicators of high winds aloft. As you can see, as the sun set last night, the winds were howling up on the ridgetops just north of the house. This view taken from our balcony.
