Compare the NKS book, page 165...

Not that it is exactly that rule - it clearly isn't. But you see many of the same sorts of features. Looking through a list of similar rules one might find a reasonably close approximation.

Let's update that page 165 reference with a link -

Very pretty. Compare and contrast these NASA images of von Karman vortices ...

... produced when the flow goes turbulent. Obvious connection with the fluid flow section on page 376 onward (http://www.wolframscience.com/nksonline/page-376).

Those are nice ...

I found another website which shows this as well:

and its parent page:

In particular the 'Florida Squall Line' and the 'Jet Stream Convergence' show 'simple' triangular CA behavior.
