a massive shelf cloud off the coast of Montevideo, Uruguay. A shelf cloud is a low, horizontal, wedge-shaped Arcus cloud. They are typically attached to the base of a parent cloud, which is usually a thunderstorm, but could form on any type of convective cloud.

This is an amazing roll cloud over Calgary, Alberta, Canada on the morning of June 18, 2013, taken by Gry Elise Nyland. According to the NOAAÂ’s National Weather Service: "A roll cloud is a low, horizontal tube-shaped arcus cloud associated with a thunderstorm gust front. Roll clouds are relatively rare; they are completely detached from the thunderstorm base or other cloud features. Roll clouds usually appear to be "rolling" about a horizontal axis."

A Waterspout near Tampa Bay, Florida | Photo: © Joey Mole | A waterspout is an intense columnar vortex that occurs over a body of water, connected to a cumuliform cloud. In the common form, it is a non-supercell tornado over water. Waterspouts do not suck up water; the water seen in the main funnel cloud is actually water droplets formed by condensation. The Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida is arguably the most active area in the world for waterspouts, with hundreds forming each year.

Lenticular Clouds The stunning meteorological phenomena of lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) is a rare spectacle. Looking more like UFO’s than clouds, they are created by three conditions: warm and moist air, winds with constant height and something big, like a tall mountain. When a current of air hits an obstacle in its way, it begins to travel upwards and starts to condense forming a lens-shaped cloud with multiple layers.

Lenticular clouds were also seen over the moors at Oxenhope near Bradford. Mr Hudson said: "The bigger the hill or mountain range the air travels across, the more spectacular the lenticular cloud".
