"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."

Waterspouts (at least, those classified as non-tornadic) generally begin their life cycle at the water’s surface before climbing up into the sky. They occur in high humidity, when warm water temperatures interact with cold air.
