It was an unusual storm that wanderEd in off the Pacific “lake” on the sub-tropical jet stream.  The atmospheric layering was very different than we usually observe.  The web like dark patterns reflect thicker cloud structures of descending cooler air with upward lighter humps of warm air bubbling upward.  It’s sort of an impossible atmospheric structure that relatively quickly collapsed back into more normal stratification and a bit of rain overnight.
