I managed to capture these stunning lenticular clouds in Point earlier today
Lenticular clouds are stationary clouds that form mostly in the troposphere, typically in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. They are often comparable in appearance to a lens or saucer.Wikipedia
These stunning waterspout photos were captured in the USA on Aug 4th.
and finally at Mount Washington Observatory in the USA a wind speed of 147 mph was recorded. The highest wind speed ever recorded there was 231 mph in 1934.
