Captured near Lake Tahoe at Diamond Peak in Incline Village, Nev., a unique formation of clouds create a scenic, dream-like view.
Known as Kelvin-Helmholtz Waves, these clouds are caused by turbulence and a change in winds over a relatively short distance vertically, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Edwards.
The bottom of the clouds are saturated and the winds are lighter than the winds at the top of the formation, which give the clouds their wave breaking appearance, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Dave Samuhel.
Creating a spectacle for anyone able to view them, these clouds can also appear braid-like on radar imagery.
After storms clipped Chicagoland early Sunday, drier air will filter into the area for the rest of the week.
A brief warmup is in store for residents of the Northeast this weekend before more fall-like conditions return.
The weekend will conclude with a couple of showers throughout the area on Sunday, but more favorable conditions will mark the start of the workweek in Detroit.
In keeping with tradition, temperatures will continue their up-and-down cycle during the second half of September around New York City.
Drier and more tranquil weather will move into the Atlanta area for the upcoming week.
The peak of hurricane season, among other things, arrives in the fall.
