Skywatch Friday:   Stratocumulus Undulatus

Stratocumulus undulatus clouds

Over Skagit Bay, stratocumulus undulatus clouds reveal wavy air motions in the atmosphere.  They can be a signal that rainy weather is on the way.  Or rainy weather is letting up.  Or both. 

Those who have followed this series may have noticed that all of the Skywatch photos here are the same scene shot from the same spot.  The two islands in the center of the photo are Skagit in front and Hope behind it.

Skywatch Friday


  1. Gorgeous skies and clouds! We do live in a beautiful part of the world, don't we, Dave! Marvelous captures! Hope you have a great weekend!


  2. I miss those beautiful Fidalgo skies! Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Look at that sky! I love when it looks like that. I also like your idea to use the same spot every time. You could eventually put them all together as a sort of 'timeline'

  4. It really is a neat idea taking pictures from the same spot. I love reading about the clouds and what they mean. Great picture!

  5. Hello from across the water in Bellingham. Nice shot! - Margy
