LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – We got a number of pictures this morning from the storm that rolled through.
Actually, that’s what those clouds were, sort of.
According to News 19 Forecast Team Meteorologist Alyssa Triplett, as the warm air collided with cold air, it created a kind of roller affect with the clouds. That showed itself with what looked like layers, or rolls, of cumulonimbus clouds on the front end of the front.
These shelf-like cloud formations are uncommon, says Triplett. The colliding fronts need to be in the right place for these formations to occur.
Thank you to everyone who contributed pictures to the slide show that’s with this story.
