Professional storm chaser

Before the movie “Twister,” before the Discovery Channel started running specials on storm chasers, before the channel even existed, Jim Reed was fascinated with weather. He has been photographing the weather for 21 years, but it all started when he was a kid growing up in Illinois.

"Mammatus clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud and severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus, but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds, as well as volcanic ash clouds. When occurring in cumulonimbus, mammatus are often indicative of a particularly strong storm or perhaps even a tornadic storm."
