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.
