Radar Picks Up Giant 'Cicada Cloud' Over Maryland

Trillions of cicadas have finally emerged from the ground in Maryland for the first time in 17 years. There appear to be so many of them across the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area that local radar has detected a giant 'cicada cloud'.

According to NBC4 Washington's Lauryn Ricketts, weather radar images around 1141 ET detected the cloud of cicadas. "THIS is not rain, not ground clutter (the radar beam picking up objects close the radar site --which is in Loudoun County).... the Hydrometeor Classification algorithm identifies this as biological in nature..so likely CICADAS being picked up by the radar beam..." she tweeted.
