Cirrus Kelvin-Helmholtz


These slim, horizontal spirals tend to dissipate quickly after their initial formation making observation difficult. These wave-like clouds are caused by a difference in velocity across the interface of two fluids. In layman’s terms, you’re most likely to see these clouds when wind blows above the water. They are also referred to as Kelvin-Helmholtz Billow clouds.
