Mammatus clouds are an intriguing enigma of atmospheric fluid dynamics cloud physics. They’re most commonly observed beneath anvil-shaped thunderclouds. They are formed when ice crystals fall from the cumulonimbus cloud’s anvil. “The ice crystals sublimate, or change from ice to water vapour as they fall, causing the surrounding air to thermodynamically cool. The cooled air becomes negatively buoyant and begins to sink, producing the punched-out look indicative of the mammatus cloud.

Matthew 24:31 And he will send out his angels with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from one extremity of the heavens to their other extremity.

Mammatus Clouds are pouch-like cloud structures and a rare example of clouds in sinking air. Sometimes very ominous in appearance, mammatus clouds are harmless and do not mean that a tornado is about to form - a commonly held misconception. In fact, mammatus are usually seen after the worst of a thunderstorm has passed.
