DISCUSSION: Here is a great post courtesy of Severe Weather Greece which depicts gorgeous lenticular clouds over the island of Crete. Lenticular clouds often form as a result of laminar flow aloft in the atmosphere which flows over higher terrain; inducing localized condensation of moisture over the higher terrain which forms the lenticular clouds! Beautiful shots to say the least! To learn more about other high-impact weather events from across Europe, be sure to click here!
