Hey Guys

Check out these clouds, a thunderstorm anvil was in over the area when i took these on 4/21/06 at 4:25pm over Eustis, FL
I think they are Mammatus clouds, correct me if i'm wrong.

Photos

They will be online until May 21 2006

You are correct. They indicate significant vertical turbulence - normally associated with severe thunderstorms capable of producing hail. Nice photos!
Cheers,
ED

Best photos of Mammatus that I've seen. Beats some of the textbook photos!
