Grand Canyon Filled with Clouds – Temperature Inversion
Experience a rare view of the canyon.
The Grand Canyon sometimes gets fog called “temperature inversion” or “cloud inversion” when warm air sits on top of cold air. A partial inversion occurs a couple times each year, usually in winter. Total inversions are rare.
A rare total inversion was seen December 11-12, 2014 by visitors to Grand Canyon National Park.
Another inversion was witnessed a little over a year earlier on November 29, 2013. The pictured views below are from Mather Point on the South Rim.
