Lenticularis over Wales

Lenticularis over Wales

On the 7th March a particularly dramatic display of lenticularis clouds formed over North Wales. They were of the form known as ‘pile d’assiettes’. This is the French for a pile of plates and refers to lenticular clouds that have the distinctive stacked appearance. You can see examples of the formations sent in to our photo gallery below.
