Florida cloud streets: Cloud streets -- parallel rows of clouds -- appear above another cloud layer over Lithia, Fla., on a morning earlier this month.

kelvin-helmholtz clouds - Google Search...The Kelvin–Helmholtz instability (after Lord Kelvin and Hermann von Helmholtz) can occur when there is velocity shear in a single continuous fluid, or where there is a velocity difference across the interface between two fluids. An example is wind blowing over water: The instability manifests in waves on the water surface. More generally, clouds, the ocean, Saturn's bands, Jupiter's Red Spot, and the sun's corona show this instability.

Kelvin Helmholtz clouds It looks like someone painted the sky with breaking ocean waves. They are called Kelvin Helmholzt clouds, aka as billow clouds or shear-gravity clouds.
