      Nebraska hail storm clouds by Briny. Mammatus clouds formed by intense vertical air circulation on the underside of a thunderhead.

      Never seen such clouds, spooky. Norfolk Nebraska clouds before the storm. Mother nature is getting freakier and freakier.

      Some pretty awesome mammatus clouds looming, and likely associated with a cumulonimbus storm cloud which can bring tornadoes, waterspouts, hail, lightning, and thunder. | Another Pinner said: "Norfolk Nebraska clouds before the storm.... 4/14/2012"

    This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it's the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover. Freakishly weird!

    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

    My dad taught me about these when I was a child. From previous pinner: Not every cloud has a silver lining; this multi-coloured cloud looks as if a rainbow has formed high in the heavens. The phenomenom - called a sundog - happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays. Photographer Robert Arn captured the cloud in Heyworth, Illinois, America.
