Pyrocumulus near HGX Radar

Here is a view of a pyrocumulus cloud - formed when rising air warmed by a wildfire rises to the point where the water vapor in the air can condense out and produce clouds. This fire was located near our office Saturday afternoon and is shown on our local KHGX radar and GOES weather satellite imagery as well.
