What is a lenticular cloud?

These cap-shaped clouds are formed on top of mountains as a result of higher moisture in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Lenticular clouds are sometimes also called standing wave clouds as they are associated with waves in the atmosphere. These develop when fast-moving air aloft is forced up over a physical obstacle, such as a mountain range or volcano.
