A Rare Weather Phenomenon Is Causing a Sea of Clouds to Fill the Grand Canyon

TIME

A rare weather phenomenon has caused the Grand Canyon to fill up with fog.

The weather pattern is called a “total cloud inversion” and occurs when clouds are forced down by warm air and cannot rise, the Associated Press reports.

Instead of the usual stunning views, visitors to the national park gaze out over a fluffy white blanket.

The National Weather Service in Arizona says the phenomenon happens every few years.

For those planning on visiting one of the world’s most famous natural wonders, the fog is expected to dissipate after Thursday.
