Cloud lines in the sky

I took these pictures about a couple of weeks ago between Toronto and Ottawa. Uniformed lines of clouds running north/south. Does anyone know how these lines are forms? Or why?

These images are free to use and available on Unsplash.

  1. Tom. Good job on the weather. Those cloud lines are cloud streets caused by Langmuir circulation. Think convergence/divergence. It is the same process that causes white streaks on water from the wind. Nice shots!
