Mysterious Cloud Patterns Over Seattle

 What Are Those Clouds In The Sky?

Mass says he received multiple reports and pictures of a wavy cloud pattern in the sky over north Seattle. This pattern is called Kelvin Helmhoz, after two men.

“It looked like the waves were breaking in two directions,” Mass said.

Mass says it’s something that occurs when two currents from opposite directions collide in the air.

“This is a great mystery that I am going to try to figure out,” said Mass, adding he is investigating the phenomenon and will write about it in an upcoming blog post.
