Cloud streets occur when heated air columns rise and rise until they reach a warmer layer that acts as a lid. The temperature inversion then causes the rising columns to form parallel cylinders of rotating air. Post the phenomenon “on the upward side of the cylinders (rising air), water vapor condenses and forms clouds. And along the downward side (descending air), skies remain clear,” NASA wrote in a blog.
