GRAND RAPIDS – You may have seen some crazy looking cloud formations from Texas this week.  Friday afternoon, a couple of smaller versions were spotted near Grand Rapids.

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids tweeted out a photo of “lenticular” clouds Friday at about 1:00pm.  The tweet says the clouds formed above convection to the southwest of Grand Rapids.  The clouds are the round, wispy clouds in the center of the frame.
