Morning glory

Rare, elongated cloud bands (visually similar to a roll cloud, or arcus cloud) that usually appear in the morning hours, when the atmosphere is relatively stable. Morning glory clouds result from perturbations related to gravitational waves in a stable boundary layer. They are similar to surfave water ripples with several parallel morning glories often seen spreading in the same direction.
