“Waterfall clouds” phenomenon
Clouds creating this phenomenon are commonly associated with a moist air flow over the mountain areas. It generally occurs when stable air collides with a mountain and is propelled upwards, cooling as it rises. Water vapors in the moist air condense and make it visible as a cloud.
As a result, when orographic clouds fall from the tops of mountains, they frequently resemble waterfalls.
