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.

MAMMATUS clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud & severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, & cirrus clouds as well as volcanic ash clouds^

Tornado in the Making. By The Kav. "I climbed up on my roof-top to get this shot of a swirling cloud attempting to become a tornado. This was at its peak strength in this series of shots...eventually it moved off to the left leaving in its wake some rain and something to talk about the next day! It was an amazing sight in this area which seldom ever sees Tornado's." http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_kav/5951875353

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!
