Lenticular clouds

As I was driving home from errands this morning, there were half a dozen lenticular clouds -- the ones that look like flying saucers -- hovering over Four Peaks and Superstition Mountain.  By the time I reached home and could get the camera out, Four Peaks was out of sight and the best of the clouds over Superstition had already started to alter its shape.

 

Lenticular clouds usually form only over mountains, or in conjunction with strong fronts.  We have a dramatic weather change moving into our area over the next several hours, plus, of course, we have mountains.
