Amazing Roll Cloud Over Las Olas Beach in Uruguay

The above roll cloud was captured over Las Olas Beach in Punta del Este, Uruguay. These low, horizontal, tube-shaped clouds are a relatively rare type of arcus cloud and appear to be “rolling” about a horizontal axis. They can be described as a solitary wave, which is a wave that has a single crest and moves without changing speed or shape. They are mainly associated with sea breezes or downdrafts from thunderstorms and can be seen in many places other than coastal areas.
