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 because it takes great updrafts to form these impressive cloud formations.
Hurricane Katrina struck the southeast U.S. August 29, 2005. This is the sky just before Katrina struck. LOVE the colors!

The Sky Before Katrina Struck. These pictures were made by a man in Magee, MS where the eye of the storm passed thru- what an experience. Magee is 150 miles North of Waveland, Mississippi where the Hurricane made landfall. The dance with Katrina, part of her beauty as she left destruction on her exit. They are remarkably dramatic...
The Sky Before Katrina Struck- I think I read that these photos were not Katrina but actually a tornado, it's hard to say what's true on the Internet. I do know that Katrina left a huge path of devastation that I myself am still recovering from.

... enormous clouds come marching over the sky, tattered clouds, wisps of cloud. What delights me then is the confusion, the height, the indifference and the fury. Great clouds always changing, and movement; something sulpurous and sinister, bowled up, helter skelter; towering, trailing, broken off, lost ... • Virginia Woolf, Waves.

Mammatus Clouds, Amazing, Sky, Beautiful, Weather, Mother Nature, Photo
Dark Roasted Blend: Mammatus Clouds, or "breast-clouds", are fascinating formations in the sky, made mostly from the cumulus cloud base. Although they are not a sign that a tornado is about to form, they often accompany tornado-producing storms, or even may be direct byproduct of tornado activity - an aftermath of severe thunderstorms.

The clouds are called Mammatus clouds. They do not precede a tornado, or foretell a storm, but are formed when the air is already saturated with rain droplets and/or ice crystals and begins to sink. The worst of the storm is usually over when these kinds of clouds are seen. They are quite rare and really beautiful.

Stratocumulus Clouds - According to the Sapporo Meteorological Observatory, these low-altitude stratocumulus clouds were rolled into long, distinctive ribbons after becoming trapped in air currents. While it is not uncommon for wind to form such patterns in stratocumulus clouds, photos that clearly show the clouds rolled into strips are rare, says the observatory
