Oh My Mammatus

Ponchatoula, LA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: True to their ominous appearance, mammatus clouds are often harbingers of a coming storm or other extreme weather system. Typically composed primarily of ice, they can extend for hundreds of miles in each direction and individual formations can remain visibly static for ten to fifteen minutes at a time. While they may appear foreboding they are merely the messengers - appearing around, before or even after severe weather.

Very nice clouds & weather series Charlotte. Thanks for the Weather/Cloud lesson. We don't see those here very often, in fact rarely, but have seen them.
