Mammatus Clouds Country Landscape Sky Art Print
Mammatus clouds with a country landscape out the Colorado agriculture farming plains with a view of two small silos. Mammatus, also known as mammatocumulus (meaning “mammary cloud” or “breast cloud”), is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma (meaning “udder” or “breast”).
True to their ominous appearance, mammatus clouds are often harbingers of a coming storm or other extreme weather system. So when you see this you know all heel is about to break lose 🙂 . Mammatus clouds are associated with very powerful storms that can occur in the summer, and are a sign of the massive quantities of water vapour that are held in the summer air.
